Configure the Search module

April 29, 2010 by Steve

After enabling the Search module, you can go to Site Configuration > Search Settings just to check it out, but so far I haven't made any changes to the default settings.

I do want a search box to show up on my theme, though, so I had to head back in to Site Building > Themes > Configure > Newswire and check the "Search Box" checkbox. It wasn't enabled when we were in here before, because the Search module wasn't active the first time. Save the configuration, and you should now see the search box up in the corner.

You will also need to give Anonymous users permission to search. (Time saver: here's the step where I set all the permissions at once.) If you want to set permissions now, go to User Management > Permissions, find the Search module permissions, and select both "search content" and "use advanced search" for Anonymous users. Save your changes.
