Other options are the ID where searches will start, and how deep they can go. For the entire site, you would set ID to "/" (without the quotes).
Levels can be set as low as you want for performance. If it is 1, then only the children of the top page will be searched. If it is 3, it will search the top page's children, their children, and their grandchildren.
Button Text is simply the text on the button that users click to start the search.
|Using the Search Page|
Keep in mind that searching for "house painters" will only find pages that have all of those words in that order. It will not find pages with only the word "house" or "house painter".
Also, large sites might return a very long list of pages.
All you need to do is send a form with a text input field called "search" to a Site Search page. For example, the following HTML would accomplish this:
<form method="get" action="http://samplesite.com/sitesearch/default.htm">
<input type="text" name="search">
<input type="submit" value="search">
Advanced users also have the option of creating a GetHTML call that returns search results. This is more useful for things like custom search pages that return results from multiple places. For example, you may have a member directory and want to return member pages first, and then general news stories second in the results.
You could also place the gethtml tag right in the body of a page. This would simply display the results right there and provide no way of interactivity.
<gethtml data="search" id="/system/mailinglists/directory/" mode="default" object="default"/>
