  • Advanced Search on any Page

    Hi, I have a news archive in my forums where we store all the news, and what I want to do is make it searchable from a certian page. I have the basic search form on there now, but it searches all forums and I just want it to search the Archives. Is there anyway to get the actual Advanced Search form on a non-vB page? I want exactly what is at /forums/search.php on a different page. Any help appreciated.

      Couldn't you just use the link to your search URL?

        Yea, but I would like it better if I could just get it to show up on another page. We have kind of intro to our news archives on a non-vB page, and then a link to the archives. I'd like it so you could search them instead of having to go to the forum first.

          Just copy the form off your advanced search page and insert it on forumdisplay and showthread. Could be cumbersome and bulky but you can make some of the fields hidden with preset values.
