    Will the search apps be able to see pages that are protected and have the noindex tag?

      I was also asking about the other two apps. I do not want my pages searched by non-members, but do want the search functionality in-site only.

      As these are 3rd party apps that were not developed by Wix, please visit their respective websites regarding support for these apps.

      Refer to the best reply above for their contact details.


      We are here should you require any further assistance.


      Have a great day! Nitzan - Wix Support Team

    Wix Team,

    First I would like to compliment you - you do excellent work.

    A search function is essential for my website, as I write about health, wellness and the prevention of illness. It is therefore important for my readers to be able to search for specific diseases and related issues.

    I do hope that you will be able to add a "search box" to your list of applications very soon.

    I am also very interested in the search-bar function. I have tried the two existing in the App Market, as suggested by Best Reply, however I do not like the look or functionality of either.

    What we need is just a very simple Search bar - customized to find results on the same page, all pages, the web etc. The results should appear maybe in a small box to the side of the page (showing bits of texts with the search words and a link to that part of the text) and then the search words highlighted in the text. This way it would be clear to see the results and find what you are looking for. 


    I do hope that you prioritize this app, because the functionality and user friendliness of my webpage (and many others) depends on it. 


    Best regards,

    Embedded search engine for song list attached to website.

    I am looking at several web design page website, my main concern is that I have a friend that runs her own karaoke business and she is looking for a web page that has the ability to search for songs (either by artist or song title) from a list that she has compiled from her own database.  I was initially going to design a web page specifically for her, but she does not have the ability to host it herself.  I am trying to look for something that is easy for her and her partners to update and utilize to allow her customers easy access to her song list instead of searching through a couple hundred page binder.

    it passed 3 years and you didn't make SEARCH BAR!?

    we will have 1000-2000 products on website and you dont have search bar!?

    I read almost all comments from people here, and I can see WIX will not add search bar option for free. They offered few 3rd party search box for money. Thats why they didnt add this option in last 3 years when kcovingto4 opened oldest ticket about this. 

    With kind regards, Marko

      Hi markokrstic,

      We have added alternatives in the mean time as this feature is a very big one and unfortunately it takes time to develop it. 

      A lot of the apps in the Wix App Market are for free and some are not. 

      We would be happy to hear about suggestions of free search bars we can add also to the App Market.

      We apologize for the inconvenience and are working very hard on adding a Wix search bar.

      Thanks, Nicole,

      Dear Nicole, for 3 years people can build spaceship and go on Moon and back. Just tell to people that you will never add REAL search box in wix webstore cause noone will buy then search options from apps market. You even blocked to people cant add use html or iframe codes for search bar, I mean they can add them but they will not work.  Any yes I have good suggestion for you: If eccommerce package is 194 usd year remove instant or pop search apps from paid apps and charge people for 200 usd for year. Noone will pay you 60 or 108 usd for search bar and everyone will pay 200 for package. YOu see? issue solved!

      With kind regards, Marko
