Adding or Editing an Existing Cross-Content Page
Add a new Cross-Content Page by selecting Add in the Custom Pages area. A popup (pictured below) will appear asking you to select which type of Custom page you wish to add. Otherwise click Edit to edit an existing Cross-Content Page.
Adding a Search Widget
Once Editing a Cross-Content Page, on the top right menu you will see a tab for Widgets. Click Widgets.
Click and drag the Search widget from the right-hand panel into the Page Content space on the left of the page.
This will then add in the Search widget into your Cross-Content page. You can drag and drop it between pages on the Cross-Content Page.
Select which Modules to Search
The default setting for the Search widget is to Search all modules within your platform: Resources, Custom Pages, Databases, Surveys and News (where applicable), however you can customize this to select specific modules.
To do so, click on the search widget and then click on the Settings icon (in yellow below) to edit.
In the upper right-hand panel under the Module field header, select the module/s you wish to include within this widget.
Multiple modules can be selected, or you can leave the default setting of All.
Resources Only Search
If you only select Resources as the module, your results will automatically appear in your Resources module.
You can also choose to restrict your search to specific Folders. If only Resources exists, click the Select button to choose a Folder. If this is done, only items within that Folder structure will appear in the search.
Search Widget Display
You will also see that your Search widget is automatically coloured in your platform default Secondary Color.
To change the colors, text or styling, you can edit the CSS/HTML as highlighted below:
You can change the colors by updating the widget CSS to override the default settings:
Note that we recommend only users familiar with HTML and/or CSS make these changes.
Remember to Save your changes in the CSS/HTML side-pane window, as well as in the page as a whole when you are finished.
