This is great … just what I needed, and it works like a charm. Thanks.

Question: I want my search box to be on a page instead of in the sidebar. I've read the WP codex about building a search page but I'm not savvy enough to figure out how to make that work with your search. Is that a question you can answer, or is that for another forum?

Can I just build a new page from the WP admin panel and slap a little code snippet into it, guiding users to your search_pages.php, or is it more complicated than that?

Thanks for your great work!!

The code for the search box is:

You can add it in any part of your theme.

Creating a Search Page is a WordPress article that explains how to create and customize your search page. You don't need to do anything special here to support our Search Pages plugin.
