Instructions for Web Administrators

Step 1: Identify who will make updates to your web site

Changes should only be performed by an experienced HTML developer.

If your web site utilizes Dreamweaver templates, updates need to be made on all templates. If your web site uses standalone HTML pages, all standalone pages must be updated.

Step 2: Enter the new search code

Insert the following new code within the HTML of your template or web page where you want the search box to appear.

<!-- START Google Site Search box -->

<form name="templesearch" method='get' action='http://search.temple.edu/search.php'>
<label for="searchString" style="position:absolute;left:-1000px;top:auto;width:1px;height:1px;overflow:hidden;">

<input type='text' value='Search' id="search" name='searchString' title="Type text to search" size="25" />
<input type='hidden' value='
YOUR URL' name='searchFolder'/>
<input type='submit' value='Search'/>

<!-- END Google Site Search box -->


  • Replace “YOUR URL” in the searchfolder field with the absolute URL of your website e.g. www.temple.edu/cs. This will restrict the results to display pages just from your web site. If you would like the results to show pages from Temple's entire search collection, please remove the entire line:

    <input type='hidden' value='YOUR URL' name='searchFolder'/>

  • Do not remove the label tag from the code as it is required to meet accessibility requirements.

If you are an experienced web developer and would like to use advanced search parameters, please view the advanced search options page

Step 3: Testing

Please visit your site on the development server and make sure the changes you made were uploaded correctly.
e.g. If your site is /cs, your development server url will be http://develop.temple.edu/cs

Step 4: Make changes live by using the File Transfer Utility.

Please make sure you transfer all files that have been changed.
