The search box is a rectangular field that lets users type in a text in order to search for information on your website. After the user types a text and clicks the search button, the system searches the database and gathers the information that is related to the specified terms that the user searched for. Therefore it is better to use the search box if you have a website that has a large amount of content.
In this article, you will find some information about displaying the search box in different areas of the website, and configuring the design and search results.
