    Hello all
    Still in love with WordPress, me. For a particular project I need a little search box to embed in my page, which will be -
    a) small
    b) elegant
    c) able to search only that particular page, perhaps simply highlighting the results it finds
    Does anyone know of such a thing? All help gratefully received.

    If you don't mind a front-end only solution (jQuery), you could use something like http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2008/11/17/search-on-this-page-using-jquery/

    ad b) You can of course style the search box however you want.

    Best regards,
    John

    Most browsers let you do that anyway.

    John -
    Many thanks - I will have a crack at this although the complexity scares me a bit. Your help is appreciated

    What you say is true, but the project deals with many elderly participants whose grasp of their own tech is sketchy at times. I thought a little click-and-search box might be more elegant and helpful
