    I would love too see a search option for wix websites. It would help with the site I'm building a lot.

    We have to have a search box. It helps a lot in case i have a lot of data since i am planning to build an online market and i need my customers to search for items instead of drilling down the menu to get where they want.

    For ll you potential WIX customers who are debating where to go.. let me tell you, based on personal experience, that WIX has a cool look and is easy to use, but that's where the benefits stop!  We have now moved our site to a competitor who has current technology such as options for payments for ecommerce and being able to add a real search feature.

    Hopefully WIX will get it right before they lose all of their paying customers.  I upgraded to premium in May and then upgraded for the ecommerce package.  I wasted my money and my wish list requests were met with repeated reply's about being on the wishlist by priority.. 


    Bottom line, if you want a feature, get it before you pay any funds and check out the true available features before you pay for something called ecommerce that only has one payment solution for your customers and no search feature for items.

    @brookenazzari and anyone else wanting a search engine,

    Google's Custom Search Engine HTML is very simple to use.

    Here is the process:

    (1) Visit http://www.google.com/webmasters

    (2) Log-In using a google account or create one.

    (3) Click Add Site, type in your website's URL

    (4) Verify Site Ownership by any number of methods, google provides directions.

    (5) Once verified, visit google.com/cse

    (6) Click New Search Engine on the left hand side

    (7) Enter required data

    (8) Copy the code that is generated for you

    (9) Enter your wix site editor

    (10) Using an HTML Add-on, paste the code in to the box and apply. Place this on the pages you desire.

    Google CSE allows you to search the whole site, or you can get very specific as to what pages on your site you would like it to search. Good luck! Feel free to email if you have questions, I will do my best to assist. My email is ah248925@gmail.com

    I think I won't go to details and will just say that SEARCH BOX is a very very important part of any web-site. Even if you make it a part of the Premium package this option WILL attract a large mass of customers to WIX.

    This is the NUMBER ONE feature I wish WIX had built in.
