AAA Search Boxes and Widgets

Search boxes and tools to use in your guides.


This page offers some examples and code for search boxes that you might wish to include in your guides.

Preview the widgets on this page, then link a box to your page. To do so:

  • Select Add new Box
  • Choose Reuse another Box.
  • Select this Guide (AAA Search Boxes and Widgets) )
  • Select the box you desire.

Feeling daring?  You can paste any widget or script code into Dynamic Content / Rich Text boxes.  Just be sure to use the Source code editor.

Caveat Coder: You will be responsible for any custom search boxes that you create.  If you link back to these boxes, it is our problem if things go bad. Just sayin.
