Thread: Create a new page for Google Search results to display?

    Default Create a new page for Google Search results to display?

    Hi

    The new Google Search update requires a separate page within your site to display the search results.

    I've created my Google Search module - which works perfectly... and so I now need my separate page for the results to display.

    So my question is this... How is the best way for me to achieve this, and what is the most appropriate page to create (ie: module, php, etc)?

    Thanks in advance...

    What exactly does Google require for the search results page?

    Thanks Brian...

    As simple as it sounds, Google needs a page to display the search results.

    So... Google supply a code... the code needs to go into the page... and when the search is undertaken, the results are displayed on 'that' page.

    I've tried a couple of time with placing the code inside a module - though I cannot seem to get it to work. When I run the search... the results page is missed and 'bounces' back to the index page of the site.

    Does any of that make sense? Let me know if you need further info and I can PM you my actual code.

    Appreciate the support... you do a great job here!

    It sounds like you would just need to create a new template page (not a module) and add the Google code there. You'll likely need to point the search form to the URL of the new CMPS page you created as well... Assuming Google uses a form for the search box, it would need to look something like this:

    Code:
    <form action="index.php" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="pageid" value="page_identifier_here" />
    (replace page_identifier_here with whatever you use for the Page Identifier setting for the new template page you create).
