The Yahoo BOSS plugin makes it easy to create a search engine in your WordPress install. Simply activate and configure and you're off and running. This plugin does not replace the default search within WordPress.
In order for your search engine to function correctly, you need to define where you want both the search form and the search results to show. This is done with simple shortcodes that you need to add to a page or pages.
To create the search form add [boss_search_form] to a page.
To define where you want your search results use [boss_search_results]. Nothing will show if a query hasn't been performed.
The page contents would be the following if you wanted a search form followed by the search results.
Use [pw_search] to combine both shortcodes.
Alternatively, there are numerous template functions available if you prefer to use those over shortcodes.
That is all you need to do to create your custom search engine.
