Hi Support Team -

We are on Cascade 7.12.5.

Our main site,, uses OMNIFIND for its search engine.

I'm currently building another site and it's much smaller in terms of content.
The clients asked for a SEARCH function for this new site and I reckon OMNIFIND is an overkill.
I searched through your discussion area and found this:

It's from 2013 so I wonder if you have any up-to-date information on the topic.

All we need is a simple search, with a resizable input box for desktop, tablet and mobile dimensions:

Looking forward to your recommendation.

Thanks and warm regards,

    Hi Rommel,

    Although things may have changed with Google's Search APIs between 2013 and now, the overall concept should still be the same.

    To summarize, you would create/register the custom search with Google and they should provide some kind of embed or API that you would then add to your pages within Cascade.

    If you would some additional guidance, I can put you in touch with someone from our Services team.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Not a problem at all, Rommel.

    Since this isn't a Cascade related issue, I went ahead and moved this discussion into the public How to I section of the forum in-case another client may want to chime in here.

    Keep me posted on how things go and have a great day!
