Selecting Search Forms

Selecting Search Forms

This article will show you how to select the fields you would like in the search form on your home page. 

Depending on your location and target market, you may want to highlight different criteria in your property search forms. Your Placester site allows you to choose the layout of your search form based on which search criteria are important to you. 

Site Settings > Search Forms

To start, open the Site Settings dropdown at the top of the Admin Panel and select Search Form. 

Select home page search fields

This will open a panel where you can choose from the different home search fields based on Purchase Type, City, Zip Code, or Neighborhood to appear on the front page of your site.

The home search form is a basic form right on the home page that includes four search drop downs. The selection you make in this step will affect the home search options. 

When you select a search form layout for your home page, it will also use that selection for the search widget that displays in your sidebar on other pages in your website.

Once you have selected how you want the visitors of your website to search from the home page, click Next.

Select listings page search fields

You can now choose to display the same fields on your listings search page or add additional fields. You can select Basic, Minimal, or Advanced search features to go along with the previous type of search form you have selected.

These settings will appear on the Listings Search page of your website, which site visitors are redirected to when they do a search from the home page.

Once you have selected your criteria, click Save.
