Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

The {{search box}} template may be used to add an input box to let the user search a set of pages, for example archived Talk pages, or user subpages, or any Wikibooks pages in any namespace. This template is usable from any page and can search pages in any namespace.

Usage[edit]

{{search box
 |root= /
 |break=<yes|no>
 |width=number
 |label=text
}}

Parameters[edit]

root
|root=User talk:Example/Archives will search in pages starting with User talk:Example/Archives. The default is the current page name. Another example: |root=User:MyUser will search in all subpages starting with "User:MyUser".
break
break=yes will insert a break between the search bar and search button. The default is no.
width
