Web Site and Search Bar Templates
Campus Search Bar
Campus units may download the campus search bar and customize it to fit with an existing Web site or incorporate the search bar as part of a redesign of a Web site.
- Download the search bar .zip file with instructions and supporting files.
- See an example of a customized search bar at the very top of the the Chancellor's Web site.
Modifying the code to search your Web site
To modify the search bar code so that it searches your Web site instead of the illinois.edu and related domains and displays within the design of your site, create a custom search for your Web site here: http://www.google.com/coop/cse/, select the standard edition, identify yourself as a not-for-profit institution and disable ads, as seen here, and replace the first three lines of the search code (shown below) in the search bar with your new search code:
var googleResultURL = http://uiuc.edu/resources/results.html
var cx = ' 006549799505564222509:-8lddip9q2g';
var cof = 'FORID:11';
Campus Dreamweaver Templates
Campus units may download and use the campus Dreamweaver templates. Adobe Dreamweaver and knowledge of HTML is needed to edit the campus templates, along with a basic knowledge of how Dreamweaver templates work.
