Easily add search functionality to a Webflow site.  Allow a Webflow user to add a search box and results page (with the option to style each), automatically index and make the site searchable.

    Please develop pagination option:
    "Support for pagination across multiple search results pages is not yet available."

    How can we search for fields? For example have filters to help query from 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom places, cities etc

    Almost a year after, it's finally here!! I'm so happy, it's a good take on Wordpress! Just integrated the search feature on a blog I build last year, so useful: https://www.opportunites.co/

    Excluding CMS data does not work although "Exclude these pages from site search results" has been set before the index was created.

    Or is the index always created using the settings of the site after publishing?

    Used it immediately. Works in general. But:

    Shows CMS data it shouldn't, since "exclude these pages from site search results" is checked on CMS collecation page template. However this is from a CMS collection that is no longer used and has been renamed afterwards. So I deleted all records, which should solve this wich next indexing.

    Search Results Thumbnails are not shown. CMS Example: on the template page a search image is set. An image is placed in the search results utilities page and set to using "search image" as source. The image got a grey background and a border in HTML so it should be visible when even empty. Empty images are visible in page preview, but no images are shown when search is done on published site - as the image would be invisible.

    Hello!
    My clients often request search functionality for their "About us"-page. When they have +20 employees it would be nice to find the right one by searching by name or title (collection data). Please make this available soon. It's almost been a year since the request was made :O)

    All the best.

    I’ve been reading all the forum posts and updates about this feature - but haven’t seen anyone commenting on how it would work with Pagination. Wouldn’t these two features go hand in hand?? I saw that pagination was mentioned in the 6/8 update. By how come one of these features is “In Development” and the other is still just “Planned”? How can you have search results without pagination?

    Update - see this thread - https://forum.webflow.com/t/what-s-the-latest-with-the-search-functionality/50096/14 “Search is in private beta with select customers now. We will be reaching out to Webflow Experts and more users to get feedback and test the product on a rolling basis”

    Any update from the Webflow team on Search Functionality would be great. Even if it won't be ready for a while, keeping us Webflow users in the loop can help set expectations as we plan projects and debate which platforms to use. We've got a big opportunity to do a site redesign, but we need search (don't want to hack it together with 3rd party solutions). We won't be starting the project until Feb 2018 but we need to decide within the next couple weeks which platform we'll be using - WordPress or Webflow. Can any Webflow staff provide an update?

    Hey guys - I've built search into my site for free using Algolia. If you're desperate for a solution whilst this is in development then I've stuck together a quick guide here: https://forum.webflow.com/t/building-instant-search-algolia-and-webflow-guide/49662

    You guys are killing me here. So many opportunities fall through to the wayside because I can't use Webflow CMS to it's fully potential with a search and custom filter functionality. Wix Code just dropped and Webflow is now looking like last years iPhone.

    I also think it's time for an update from the time for this core-level functionality.

    Thanks.
