Add a search help pop-up to your search page

Want to help your visitors make the most of your site's search function? Add a search help pop-up to your search page.

First, go get some content for the pop-up. This page has some great information. Base yours off of what's here: … _s_searchh

Here's how to create the pop-up: (For Backlight 1.1 - Okapi -and earlier)
here's updated code for Backlight 1.2 Pangolin: … hp?id=7774

To add the pop-up to your search page, go to Backlight>Publisher>Settings, click on Edit Settings and add the code to the Search Intro field.

Here's an example:

In my example I've wrapped the search terms in a pre tag with the class of "code".

In my custom css file I added this:

.code {
	border: 1px solid black;
	background-color: #dcdcdc;
	padding: 12px;

Just a user with way too much time on his hands., Backlight 2/3 test site
