Search Engine Studio FAQ

Question ID:
I want to customize the search. How can I configure the search script to filter out results based on different criteria (e.g. date, type, site section)?
You can easily configure the search box (or choose one of the predefined choices) in the search box builder (accessible from the Search Engine menu -> Edit search box or from the toolbar).
In the search box builder you can specify user-selectable or hidden (default) filters such as: database choice, document type filter, date filters, or URL filter.
If you want to further customize the search box and find out about all parameters accepted by the search script, open program help and go to the 'Search script parameters' section.
