Pico Search Plugin

Provides very basic search functionality, loosely ranking results based on number of matches per page. To be improved for better search results.


  1. Create a page with any name you like, for example "search". In the meta section include Purpose: search_results.
  2. In your template provide a basic HTML form with an input field named q, method GET, and action URL pointing to the page you have created.
  3. Add the following code to your template near the {{ content }} tag:
{% if meta.purpose == "search_results" %}
        <p class="meta">{{ search_num_results }} page(s) found for "{{ search_term }}"</p>
        {% for page in search_results %}
                <h4><a href="{{ page.url }}">{{ page.title }}</a></h4>
                {% if page.date %}<p class="meta">{{ page.date_formatted }} by {{ page.author }}</p>{% endif %}
                <p class="excerpt">{{ page.excerpt }}</p>
        {% endfor %}
{% endif %}
