Search and display classifieds

This article will show you how to insert a web control into a page to display a search feature and list the resulting classifieds information on your website.

  1. Right click on your classifieds folder and select New Content. The Create New Content window will appear.
  2. Click Web Page and then select your standard web page template, click Close.
  3. A new page will be created, give the page a title (eg. Classifieds-search) and click Save.
  4. In the editable area of the page, right click to bring up the contextual menu. Select Insert Webcontrol and make any changes needed to the web control settings. Click Save, then Submit & Approve.

Note: By default the search results will display on the same page as the search web control. If you want to display search results on a separate page, you will need to create a new page, insert the listing web control and use the Results Page setting to direct the search to it.
