There are a few different ways to install AddSearch to your website:

  1. Quick installation with a single line of code
  2. A configurable installation tailored to your needs with Search Designer
  3. A fully custom solution created with Search UI Library or by AddSearch Team

Quick Installation

For installing AddSearch, you need an AddSearch account that comes with a public site key. You can find your your sitekey in the Keys and installation section of AddSearch dashboard.

Replace #### with your site key and paste the installation script to your website’s template or to the page’s source code in the place where you want the search to appear.

<script src="https://cdn.addsearch.com/v4/addsearch-ui.min.js?key=####"></script>

The design template usually resides in a menu called “Theme”, “Template”, “Design”, “Appearance” or similar in your CMS. For WordPress sites, the templates reside in Appearance -> Editor.

If you have an existing search on your site, go to site template edit and find your site’s search form. This is a HTML element that starts with a <form> tag, such as <form id=”search”>. Once you’ve found the relevant <form> tag, replace it and everything down to and including the closing </form> tag with the AddSearch script snippet.

This is how the quick installation looks like:



Configurable Installation

You are happy with our ready-made views, but want to make a few changes in the functionality? Adjust the behaviour of the search with the Search designer and get your own implementation that can be installed with a few-line script snippet by following the configurable installation guide.

Custom Installation

If you want to implement your own design or need any particular feature that is missing from the ready-made views, we recommend checking our tools for a custom installation.
