1. Open file [LIFRAY_SDK]/themes/{theme-name}/docroot/_diffs/templates/portal_normal.vm

2. Add $theme.search() at your desired location.

3. Build and deploy the theme.

4. A search text box will appear where the code was placed

Steps to customize the search:

In case you need to customize the search functionality to search only specific content types, follow the steps below.

1. Open file [LIFERAY_HOME]/tomcat-6.1/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/portal-ext.properties

2. Add following lines:

com.liferay.portlet.blogs.util.BlogsOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.bookmarks.util.BookmarksOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.calendar.util.CalendarOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.directory.util.DirectoryOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.documentlibrary.util.DLOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.imagegallery.util.IGOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.journal.util.JournalOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.messageboards.util.MBOpenSearchImpl=true

com.liferay.portlet.wiki.util.WikiOpenSearchImpl=true

3. Change values to “false” for those you do not want to include in search result.

For example, to search only “Web Content”, leave “com.liferay.portlet.journal.util.JournalOpenSearchImpl” to “true” and make other values to false.
