LocomotiveCMS search

Setup

Open your Gemfile and add locomotive-cms search to it:

gem 'locomotivecms-search', require: 'locomotive/search/mongoid'

Check out the Activesearch gem to know which backends are available and how to configure them.

Run bundle install

Adding the search results page

[New way]

{% search_for params.query, per_page: 10, page: params.page %}

<p>{{ search.total_entries }} elements found.</p>

<ul>
{% for result in search.results %}
  <li><a href="/{{result.slug}}">{{ result.title }}</a></li>
{% endfor %}
</ul>

{% if search.total_pages > params.page %}
  <p>
    <a href="?page={{ params.page | plus: 1 }}&query={{ params.query }}">Next page</a>
  </p>
{% endif %}

{% endsearch_for %}

[Old way]

Create a new page that will display your search results. Its code might be something like this:

{% for result in site.search %}
  <li><a href="/{{result.slug}}">{{ result.title }}</a></li>
{% endfor %}

As you can see, when a search string is passed in the URL, you can fetch the results by using site.search. Choose a good slug, like "search".

Adding the search form

Anywhere on your site you can add a simple form to fire a search. This could be done on the homepage, on a page you are inheriting from, on even on a snippet. Just add this code:

<form action="/{{ locale }}/search" method="GET">
  <label for="search">Search</label>
  <input type="text" name="search" id="search">
  <input type="submit" value="Search">
</form>

The important part is the action parameter, since it must point to the slug of your search results page. Also, the name of the search input must be "search".

Search from the back-office

From the 0.3.0 version, this gem includes a search bar for your LocomotiveCMS back-office. This search bar uses the typeahead javascript plugin.

The only requirement is to have the LocomotiveCMS 2.5.x version installed.

In your LocomotiveCMS main application (the one embedding LocomotiveCMS), you need to add 2 files (or edit them if they already exist).

In the app/views/locomotive/shared/_main_app_head.html.haml file, add these 2 lines:

= javascript_include_tag  'locomotive/search_bar'
= stylesheet_link_tag     'locomotive/search_bar'

In the app/views/locomotive/shared/_main_app_header.html.haml file, add this line:

  = render 'locomotive/shared/search_bar'

Note for mongoid 2.x users

If you are using the mongoid engine and still on 2.x, you must use locomotivecms-search version ~> 0.0.5
