        Looking forward to this feature arriving sometime soon.
        A great addition to an evolving product.
        Keep up the good work!

        A search feature will add great value to our webydo sites. Thanks for getting this feature in the pipeline. Looking forward to its rollout.

        Hi,

        A search box option for customers is important for any website. Lets all get behind this one and get Webydo to give it to us. Yes you can do a custom search box via google, but thats $100 a year, just one more expense you have to add to the clients bill. Cheers

        I would have thought this was a fundamental need of any CMS and would advise this is done ASAP to stop clients like me looking elsewhere.

        Have to agree with last poster. Was seriously considering moving my site here until I happened to come upon this topic while searching to see if you were able to have comments following blog posts. Will have to wait until a search box is implemented.

        Are you able to email an alert out once a search function is added? Webydo is unfortunately useless to me without a search function. Would it be possible to be able to add tags/categories or labels to each article to assist with searchability too?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need to be able to add categories and tags to articles that are searchable. I actually can't believe webydo doesn't at the very least have a search box.

        Although I agree that search boxes/fields are prevalent on most Websites today, I have only found them useful on .edu or Google site searches. (Yea, I know: "Duh!" on the Google search.)
        In all other cases the search fields either "can't find what I am looking for" (even if I am searching only one word, that should definitely be in the blog/article/piece, and then implement meta data search rules/quotes/commas/etc.) or the results have no reliable, useful filtering options.
        In most cases I find the search box/field to be the most annoying code/feature on a site. That said, I don't mean to downplay anyone else's feelings on the subject, just wanted to share mine.
        Thanks!

        It's a pretty standard feature on sites. Actually shocked it's not one of the first things Webydo had put out there :)
        100% needed.

        I would like to know if i can create a drop down menu, search box in Webdyo or do I have to build this somewhere else and embed it in the website?

      • Andrew BartonAndrew Barton commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Absolutely vital--I notice that your own site (this one) doesn't have a search function.

        Therefore, how I am supposed to find the info on Webydo "Articles" that I am looking for (as referenced on Google!)
