Implementing Search

Vote:
 

Hi,

We're about to start our EPiServer implementation and one of the requirements is for a search.

It's pretty straightforward, enable users to search on individual words, multiple words and phrases. Has anyone implemented this using the out of the box EPiServer search functionality or is this too basic for what I need. I keep seeing references to the Search Template but cannot fund it anywhere, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

Neil

A search page ( Search.aspx) is shipped with the public templates - install the public templates on your machine. See the EPiServer CMS 5 R2 Installation Instructions - Install the public templates (Web site).
