How to add search bar to web part page

  Asked By: Keaton    Date: Jan 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4310

Using the CEWP, is there a way I can add the search bar to a web part
page I have created? The search bar shows up everywhere else in WSS,
but not on web part pages I have created.

I tried this once awhile back, if I remember correctly search  would appear but not work.

If you can edit the ASPX direct mode page, that would be best. Just add
the search  server control to the right place on the page. If not, you
should be able to use the same HTML that the search uses on other pages.
A CEWP could be used to position the HTML in the client-side DOM. I
don't know why that wouldn't work.

but I've tried that as per our previous discussion and
as another poster said, when you copy the exact HTML from ViewSource
the control appears correctly (I used a simple form web  part since a
CEWP doesn't accept FORM tag), it accepts text input, but when you
click "go" the page  refreshes with no results (no matter what you
type in there).

I will continue researching this...

Import the attached CEWP DWP onto any Smart Page in any Document Library
and you should see the familiar Search Box in the top right corner.
Please let me know the pros and cons of your experience; then I'll blog
about it.
