Its results are kinda crappy, relevance is non-existant... all in all pretty much a waste of my time.</p> <p>I figured I'd let Google do the hard work for me, since they specialize in Search, right? But how to do that easily in Thematic, without having to go and completely rewrite search forms, search results, or even worse... download outdated plugins that refer to outdated Google Search techniques like iFrames!?</p> <p>As of Dec, 2012, the following information should hold true. Hopefully Google doesn't change things up any time soon, and if they do, well, hopefully I'll get the emails to come update this.</p> <p>First off, <a href="http://devpress.com/blog/using-google-search-within-a-wordpress-site/">refer to this wonderful web page that describes setting up google custom search and how to set up all the code on the Google Side.</a></p> <p>You'll return back here once you have the google code that the author of that page instructs you to cut and paste into the contents of searchform.php and search.php. We're going to do it differently, using hooks'n'filters and your child theme functions.php.</p> <p>OK... I assume you're back, and you got a page of from Google with a couple fields of code on it.</p> <p>What you'll do now is open your functions.php file in your child theme that you're developing out of rather than altering the default Thematic templates (Right? RIGHT?!)</p> <p>In your Functions.php, you're first going to create a filter to rewrite searchform php. You're going to copy the blurb of google code from the top field, and insert into a custom function that looks something like the following:</p> <pre><code>function childtheme_search_form() { ?&gt; INSERT YOUR CODE HERE (and replace this text) &lt;?php } add_filter(&#39;thematic_search_form&#39;, &#39;childtheme_search_form&#39;);</code></pre> <p>The default look and feel of the wordpress search won't change, but the functionality behind it will.</p> <p>Next you'll make use of the really handy childtheme_override function that's already built into Thematic, for the Search Loop. You'll insert the block of code from the second google field where I describe:</p> <pre><code>function childtheme_override_search_loop() { ?&gt; INSERT YOUR CODE HERE (and remove this line). &lt;?php }</code></pre> <p>Lastly, you might want to customize some of the look and feel of the google elements. You can either sign up for their paid-for search partnership, OR you can go back and download the .css file from the theme you chose when you were setting up your search. It will be the 2nd to last link at the bottom of the "Get Code" page, and it should say something like</p> <blockquote><p>You can customize the look and feel even more or extend the functionality of the Custom Search element by:</p> <li>Downloading the CSS source file.</li></blockquote> <p>I copied the contents of that css file into its own search.css file that I plopped into a "layouts" directory in my childtheme. I then used an @import in the style.css to have it automatically included. I then proceeded to restyle the theme I chose to match the site I built. <strong>Note: you have to use !important after any style elements you update, as the google css is pulled in after your style sheet.</strong></p> <p>And that's it. The site I just finished about 30 minutes ago (so the site hasn't been indexed and there are no results showing yet, as of Dec. 14 2012, 3:40am) is <a href="http://pacificstandardtimefestival.org">Pacific Standard Time Art and Performance Festival</a>.</p> <p>All right, hope that helps! </p> helgatheviking on "Replacing Wordpress search with Google" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/replacing-wordpress-search-with-google#post-24205 Thu, 08 Dec 2011 12:14:21 +0000 helgatheviking 24205@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>no tutorials that i know of. your code for replacing the search loop looks fine. however, if you are getting a 404 then your loop isn't the problem. </p> Nate H on "Replacing Wordpress search with Google" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/replacing-wordpress-search-with-google#post-24184 Wed, 07 Dec 2011 20:22:05 +0000 Nate H 24184@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>I must be missing something.

This is my first post. I'm from the Netherlands so my english isn't that good. I'm sorry for that! First thing I want to say: Thematic rocks!</p> <p>Okay, here's the deal: I want to make a custom homepage (frontpage) with an extra area below the header section. In this custom area, I want to have a multiple category search widget. (See: <a href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multiple-category-selection-widget/" rel="nofollow">http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multiple-category-selection-widget/</a> and <a href="http://wordpress.zackdesign.biz/" rel="nofollow">http://wordpress.zackdesign.biz/</a> )</p> <p>In other words: I want a huge header with a nice background image and a div containing the multiple cat search, so visitors can filter categories.</p> <p>My questions:<br /> 1) Is there already a kind of "Thematic multiple category search filter" ready to use?<br /> 2) If not: Do you guys and girls know a tutorial so I can create this multi-cat-search box straight into my custome homepage / frontpage?</p> <p>I just don't like to add lots of non-thematic plugins to my wp theme and want to have a clean childtheme with only one stylesheet.</p> <p>Is there any kind of solution, or should I keep dreaming?<br /> I'm kind of a noob with PHP, but I'm familiar with HTML and CSS.<br /> Thanks for your replies! </p>
