To activate this add-on on the website please follow these steps:


1. Go to Settings - Design Settings:



2. Inside the Design Settings there are two places where this search module can be selected:


Design Settings:




Select the Search Type inside Header Design >> Show Header Search and scroll down until the Global Search options show up and select "Global Website Search" or "Global Website Search + Location":




Homepage Layout:



Select the Search Type inside the Homepage Search Settings and scroll down until the Global Search options show up and select "Global Website Search" or "Global Website Search + Location":




This will allow the website users to search for a specific keyword and it will show results from all of the available features:



Adding this search type will change the sidebar that is on the search results pages so it will also use a Global Website search type. The admin will be able to edit this sidebar without any problems:



The admin has access to edit the default URL of this search result by going to Content - SEO Templates and editing the Global Website Search.
