Google Search

Google search free

Also check out Google Search-2 to see how I integrated a Google search appliance into Intuit's baseline wikis. --MHart 16:41, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

A Slightly Different ExampleEdit

This change is very much in the mode of the one above, for which I am grateful for the head start on the code. My version does not have the radio buttons, but does have the option to have the original search, the google search, or both. I have not yet tested this with the latest version. But it does work with 1.4 and I have every expectation that it will work with 1.5 as soon as I get done with the install ...

You can see the working example at the "Unofficial BOINC Wiki!" where, at least for the moment, I have both searches turned on.

As of April 2006 the URL of the Unofficial BOINC Wiki has changed to http://boinc-wiki.ath.cx/ 203.218.86.162 03:40, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

What To DoEdit

As above, go into your current skin file (mine was/is Monobook). You need to find the code shown above and you are going to cut it out, and instert the new code as provided.

    <?php
    global $wgSearchTypeEnabled; // pull in the externally declared "Global"
    global $wgSearchSiteURL;
    global $wgSearchDomain;

    if ((strtolower($wgSearchTypeEnabled) == strtolower("Google")) ||
        (strtolower($wgSearchTypeEnabled) == strtolower("Both"  ))) {
      echo "    <div id=\"p-search\" class=\"portlet\">\r\n";
      echo "      <h5><label for=\"searchInput\">Google Search</label></h5>\r\n";
      echo "      <div class=\"pBody\">\r\n";
      echo "        <!-- SiteSearch Google -->\r\n";

    } 
    
    if ((strtolower($wgSearchTypeEnabled) == strtolower("WikiDefault")) ||
        (strtolower($wgSearchTypeEnabled) == strtolower("Both"  ))     ) {
      echo "    <div id=\"p-search\" class=\"portlet\">\r\n";
      echo "      <h5><label for=\"searchInput\">";
      $this->msg('search');
      echo "</label></h5>\r\n";

      $this->text('searchaction');
      echo "\"\r\n";

      echo "          <input   id=\"searchInput\" \r\n";
      echo "                 name=\"search\"\r\n";
      echo "                 type=\"text\"\r\n";
      if ($this->haveMsg('accesskey-search')) {
        echo "            accesskey=\"";
        $this->msg('accesskey-search'); 
        echo "\"\r\n";
      }
      if (isset($this->data['search']) ) {
        echo "                value=\"";
        $this->text('search');
        echo "\""; // don't end with line feed, need end of control

      echo "	  </div>\r\n";
      echo "	</div>\r\n";
    
    }

    ?>

The important part of the "Page Source" output by all that "muck" above looks like:

        <div id="p-search" class="portlet">
      <h5><label for="searchInput">Google Search</label></h5>

                       value=""></input>

              </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>

                <input type="hidden" name="oe" value="UTF-8"></input>
                <input type="hidden" name="hl" value="en"></input>
              </td>

            </tr>
          </table>
        </form>
        <!-- SiteSearch Google --> 
      </div>
    </div>
    <div id="p-search" class="portlet">
      <h5><label for="searchInput">Search</label></h5>
      <div class="pBody">

                   id="searchform">
          <input   id="searchInput" 
                 name="search"
                 type="text"
            accesskey="f"
                value="" />
          <input type="submit"
                 name="go"
                class="searchButton"
                   id="searchGoButton"
                value="Go" /> 
          <input type="submit"
                 name="fulltext"
                class="searchButton"
                value="Search" />
        </form>
        <!-- SiteSearch WikiDefault --> 
	  </div>
	</div>

This shows what you SHOULD be getting. I know a lot of programmers do not spend that much time on the output formatting, but, a clue from Paul, it helps to troubleshoot the code if you can see what the heck is being output.

ConfigurationEdit

In you LocalSettings.php you need to add the configuration lines:

# The type, or types of searches allowed. Values are: "Google", "WikiDefault", "Both"
$wgSearchTypeEnabled = "Both";

# The site and/or to which the search should be restricted
$wgSearchSiteURL = "http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/";
$wgSearchDomain  = "http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/";

Obviously, you may want to consider changing the values there to make them suit your site.

I hope to expand to an advanced page, but, have not finished this one. If anyone tries it and has a suggestion for improvement, I can be reached at home.
