This template creates a simple search box for a page's all subpages, like archives.

Usage[edit]

Simple {{search box}} creates a search box. The scope is all subpages of the tagged page, excluding that page itself.

{{search box
 |root= /
 |search-break=<yes|no>
 |search-width=number
 |search-button-label=text
}}

Parameters[edit]

root
The target page. |root=User talk:Example/Archives will search all subpages of User talk:Example/Archives. The default is the current page name.
noslash
By default, the target page itself is excluded, by appending a slash "/" to the "root" parameter. If you want to include it, set noslash=yes.
search-break
search-break=yes will insert a break between the search bar and search button. The default is no.
search-width
can be used to change the width of the text field, in characters. The default is 22, which fits the search bar with the default box width. Note: this is a bare number with no units.
search-button-label
can be used to change the text on the search button. The default is "Search".
