Editor X: Adding and Setting Up Site Search
Add a search bar to your site to let visitors find anything they need. The search results are displayed clearly in a list, showing content from your site pages as well as store products, blog posts and much more.
Before you begin:
Make sure your site is set to appear in search engines. If it's hidden, visitors won't be able to see their search results.
Step 1 | Add the Site Search App
The first step is adding the Wix Site Search app directly from the Add panel. Once you click the Add to Site icon , you'll be redirected to a new Search Results page that is fully customizable.

Step 2 | Customize the Search Bar
After adding the Site Search app, choose a search bar from the Add panel and drag it to a section on your page. We recommend placing it in the default master header to ensure it's always visible.
Next, customize the search bar's placeholder text, layout and design to make it your own. You can also enable quick search to let visitors see search results on the spot, in addition to the Search Results page.
