Search Box for One Page Only, Not Entire Site

Status: New Idea
by navinkharmai on ‎06-08-2017 11:12 AM - last edited on ‎06-08-2017 11:58 AM by Community Manager

Part of our business is audiovisual equipment rentals. Currently I have a page that just has text blocks with a listing of the 200+ pieces of equipment we have available.


It would be very nice to allow a potential customer to have a search box at the top of that page that searches only that page, then drops them down to that result on the same page.


Additionally, when someone is scrolling down the list, it would be helpful to have a 'back to top' feature.

Once we are logged in to a password protected page, we should be able to search those pages.  Currently passorded pages are not indexed!!  The search bar on a passworded page should access a password protected index!! 


Many of our pages cannot be searched at this point! Yikes!

Search Bar functionality on non-public pages

I went with pro for both the search bar and password protection functionalities. I was quite disappointed to find that haveing a password protected site "breaks" the search bar function, as it only indexes puclic pages.


For anyone hoping to using Weebly to make an internal site or business intranet, they lose the option of a search bar - which is a basic, much needed tool. Please address.

Ablity to Hide Pages to Website Internal Seach Engine

Hello Weebly Engineers, please consider adding an Option to Hide Pages inside Website Internal Search Engine and have the hidden pages "Still Available" to be searched on External Search Engines like Google, Etc. for SEO purposes.



How about a Search Capability that Actually Searches Scribd docs

Status: New Idea
by Dbrad4d on ‎03-02-2017 11:47 AM - last edited on ‎03-02-2017 01:57 PM by Community Manager

As a Genealogy Society, we use Scribd to display many (>100) documents. To preserve copyright protection, we exclusively upload password protected PDFs that restrict printing, editing, copy& paste, etc.


Some are large unwieldy indexes with up to 10,000 names making it important to have a search utility capable of finding a "needle in the haystack."


The our search difficulties are two-fold:

  1. On our Weebly hosted site, a browser's Find function (CTRL+F) only searches the visible portion of a Scribd file within the Scribd frame (typically 1 page of several dozen pages of a scrollable document), and
  1. If users click Scribd's "enlarge" button and go to full screen at the Scribd host site, their search function is less functional: even names visible in the first page of a PDF document are "not found" by Scribd's search utility.

I looked at the alternative app "File Embed" but at $9.99/month, this would double our non-profit's web budget.

Linking to a search result

Status: New Idea
by BobAchgill on ‎03-02-2017 10:46 AM - last edited on ‎03-02-2017 01:58 PM by Community Manager

For example:<search_query>

...this link would bring up a results page in the having found all locations of "ball"

The GooglePlay store has this feature... see this link and look for the title paragraph... "Linking to a Search Result"

Search Filters on Product Pages + Keywords

Status: New Idea
by SES737 on ‎02-02-2017 02:28 PM - last edited on ‎02-05-2017 09:19 AM by Community Manager

I noticed there have been some filters added to the search, which is helpful, but I would prefer to have the filters on my product pages instead of the full category display. And be able to set which filters to use, so I can allow my customers to filter to categories instead of having them all out there. 

I would also love if each product had an option to add keywords that are searchable, so for example if someone searches "eyeshadow" or "eye shadow" the same products will show up despite what our formal product name is, without creating two separate categories of "eyeshadow" and "eye shadow" which would be super confusing because we can't hide categories. Does that make sense?

the Search Box is quite basic and bland.


It would be great to develop a much bigger and better looking search box, with more features.

Searching PDF content

Status: New Idea
by dnhg on ‎06-10-2017 06:52 PM - last edited on ‎06-11-2017 06:54 AM by Community Manager

I'm a member of the Dubai Natural History Group ( who produces a monthly newsletter with articles about different flora and fauna found in the UAE, which is then uploaded to our weebly website as .pdf documents.


Having the newsletters online is a great resource for our members, but there is no way to tell what is in each newsletter/.pdf without manually typing and maintaining an index.


Would it be possible to get a 'search function' that will search the 'content' of the newsletters/ .pdfs?


For example; if you wanted to see all the articles on 'cuttlefish' you can type the word 'cuttlefish' in a search box and it will bring up all the newsletters that have that word.


At the moment I am doing this search in google. By googling 'dnhg gazelle cuttlefish pdf' - but it doesn't display all the newsletters. 


How can I get it to bring up all the newsletters?

Search Box Function

I would like to be able to change the font for the wording entered into a search box.  Currently, it looks heavy and doesn't match the font on my site.


Additionally, I would like the option to remove the coloured squares that appear in the left hand filter - I wouldnt mind but the colours seem to repeat themselves and it doesnt look very professional.


Many thanks!

Order or filter Gallery Captions

I have captions on my photos. When I search a specific caption (many of them are similar) it only returns the first photo with that caption. I want it to return all of them. I really want it to restrict the photos that show to just the ones that pertain to that caption. So for instance. The website is When I go to 2br+ I want to search 3br and only the 3br photos pop up. Is this doable?

Put a Custom Scripting feature

Status: Archived
by jasongalea on ‎01-16-2017 03:01 AM - last edited on ‎01-16-2017 09:39 AM by Community Manager

hi folks...


I wish Weebly had a custom Search function/custom scripting feature.

I understand a Weebly website owner has the ability to assign a custom developer for work on my site.  But i'm told this has limitations.


Is the weebly platform able to house a ‘proper and complex’ search function? (travel location related/theme). To be able to perform search functions whereby a name pre-populates as the user types in the word.  (popular on so many travel sites these days)


Lets use the Travel industry, as an example.  So, basically when you type in word of a destination, then a script will pop down on the suggestive words including in the site.   The word automatically 'pops up'/

Please take the time to read through this question properly as I would love this as a major feature on my site with hundreds of pages.


I really hope you can implement this one day!!


Thank you for your help!

Search Result Link color change

My theme has a light color font so the search engine results default to that theme. I've tried changing the link font color in the settings but the search results still default to the original light color. I would like to be able to control that in the app.  Thanks!

Small site search fix wins BIG

Status: Archived
by ningago on ‎12-08-2016 09:07 AM - last edited on ‎12-08-2016 09:20 AM by Community Manager

It's a rather standard practice for website search to be full site indexing as a default method. I noticed your search function only index public pages but excludes those protected by the site password or membership.


It is a small fix from a development perspective. But it brings you on par.


It also doesn't break anything else. protected pages will always require login anyway.


Thanks a lot!
