Chapter 17. Simple search form

<form action="" method="get" accept-charset="UTF-8">    <!-- 1 -->
    <input type="search" alt="Catalog Search" maxlength="200"
            size="20" name="query"
            placeholder="Search catalog for..." />
    <input type="hidden" name="qtype" value="keyword" />           <!-- 2 -->
    <input type="hidden" name="locg" value="4" />                  <!-- 3 -->
    <input type="submit" value="Search" />


Replace '' with the hostname for your catalog. To link to the Kid’s OPAC instead of the TPAC, replace 'opac' with 'kpac'.


Replace 'keyword' with 'title', 'author', 'subject', or 'series' if you want to provide more specific searches. You can even specify 'identifier|isbn' for an ISBN search.


Replace '4' with the ID number of the organizational unit at which you wish to anchor your search. This is the value of the 'locg' parameter in your normal search.
