Where To Go


To add a Google Search box to your homepage,  you will need to create a custom Google Search box by following the instructions at https://cse.google.com/cse/all


Make sure to use the default Layout (Overlay) and Theme (Default) settings as those are the only one that are supported at this time.


If your school has 501c(3) status) you may select the “No Ads” option when setting up the custom search.


Once you have created the Google Search box and copy the embed code provided by Google. Then log into your site and click on the site tile.  From here go to Manage Web Site.

  1. Click Edit.
  2. Click Add Google Custom Search.
  3. Paste the Google search embed code.
  4. Click Done.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click Update.
  7. Click Update Live Site.
