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.
01/09/18: Site search has now launched: check out the feature page to learn more.
11/30/17: Site search is now in beta. Find out more in our release notes.Once you've experimented with search, leave us your feedback.
Adding pages to Algolia on save and having an "Add-able" Algolia instant search box, and an Algolia results "Collection" would be really nice.
The function I've always needed for 90% of my websites..
Please please please! NEED THIS!
For the Webflow programmers: I did a little research on search options results. take a look at this one! This kind of option would be great!
Example: a simpeler one.
Example: Collections search.
Hopefully there are loads of capabilities including but not limited to autocomplete and live filtering.
I agree autocomplete would be great to have. Also, I'd expect the search to be semantic, and be able to prioritise results (for example, decide whether to include tags, or certain metadata). Thanks
We need this ASAP!
Is there a release date planned?
I need this feature.
I have a proposition for search and filtering here: https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-464
This is amazing, if this goes into effect ill shit my pants.
It's the basic. Weflow deserve it.
This would be great. And as elastic search it would be fantastic.
More important now, given that google is shutting down GSS
Happy to see this is planned. Any updates on the release of this vital feature?
I really need this function badly!
Any update on this since January?
Having the option (at least for the CMS) would seem normal given WF's new prices
I wish this functionality to be a live especially for designers who would like to do the website from A - Z.... as im struggling to find someone to help me to add custom code for search or do it for me and integrated in my website.... my case that i have a store directory for shopping center and the stores i do it in CMS.
Webflow would be a rock if it has many solution for many cases and it will be the no. 1 .... as it is clean and challenging for designers to understand coding process... even if they look at lines of codes they can understand what is writing and know the terminologies of coding like Div... etc. I'm the one who is trying to convince the company to host all their websites in Webflow as we have 4 and there is a lot coming for our projects, as they all will be Centralized in one place and have full control on all.... but i have one issue with Search functionality as i don't want to have many payments from search functionality and webflow i need one place to pay for..
For what it's worth, SearchIQ.xyz provides a free search offering that is fairly easy to integrate with webflow. Instant search and autocomplete included .
Collection search priority with generic search secondary (but still important).
Option to filter results by Single / Multi Reference(s)
Here is an example of Algolia integrated with Webflow.
Need this. Some type of search suggestions/ auto complete functionality should be a part of this. Elasticsearch may be a good solution for you to build this on.
Any updates on this, Webflow? Like, how is progress going thus far? Any setbacks? etc
We would be grateful if Admin could provide an update on this.After all, it is the second most popular item in the entire Wish List and it has been four months since the last update.
Are there any updates on this Wish List item? Would love to hear an estimate on when a custom search functionality might come out.
Any info when this feature is likely to drop?
We all need this so badly. Any release date ahead ?
Why do I have a feeling this is coming soon... :D
Will search also include the ability to add filters to get more precise results for the user. A quick example is the search on this site - http://www.lovelocaljobs.com
I really hope this is coming soon! Excited about this feature!
Very excited for this feature, guys! Thanks for the hard work, and cannot wait to try it out.
Hi, Any update on when this might be released? I'm going to launch a new site in the next couple of months and Google Search is just a pain to implement so I really need this. Can you please tell me if the search will index dynamic pages as this is essential for me? Thanks!
this is so dope!
Can't wait to see this. Have three further projects, where search is needed, in pipeline.
Was hoping for September ... is there any news?
Please provide any update, this is really show stopper for considering web flow as serious CMS platform.
I also think it's time for an update from the time for this core-level functionality.Thanks.
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.
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
Is this the next big release?
Any news on this function?
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?
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”
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?
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.
Can't believe it. It's here.
Sooo GREAT GREAT GREAT. LOVE Webflow more than ever.
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.
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?
Great! I've been waiting for this for so long. Thank you, Webflow!
So good! Thanks guys this is wonderful news
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/
How can we search for fields? For example have filters to help query from 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom places, cities etc
