Hi again,
Is there a search option on the YolaSite, templates? If I have a store site, can people type in keywords in a search bar and be taken to related products?

Hi Fid,

Although we don't have the directly incoporated into the styles, you can add a Google site-search box by using the Widgetbox Gallery:

This widget will search your site's pages.

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialog box will open, in the search box type "Site Search".
3. Then click on "Search Your Site With Google". This will search just your site, but there will be a Google icon on the widget and possible ads.
4. Add your domain to "Site to Search"
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

You can also use a free site search service called siteLevel:

This will also search the pages of your site.

1. Go to https://www.sitelevel.com/.
2. Fill in your email address and domain name.
3. Click Sign Up
4. Hightlight the Javascript Search Box option and copy it
5. In the Sitebuilder drag and drop an HTML Widget onto your page. The HTML Widget is located on the Widgets Sidebar and is a little blue circle.
6. Paste the code into the dialog box and click "OK".
7. Save and preview your page to view the search box.

I hope this does the trick for you! Please feel free to reply here if you need further help.
