create new tag
, view all tags
Hi, I'm working on an Intranet and would like to use TWiki. However, people in the office already use it for adding information but i would like to just have a page with search results on with the same style as my company intranet. I also only want my users to search just one forum.

I can create the search page no problem just by adding the search form to my look and feel page but how can i create my own results page? On my results page i don't want to give users any options at all apart from being able to view the searched results.

Could anyone shed any light on this for me?

Not sue if this is the case, I assume you want to use TWiki's search and show the result in your corporate look. That is a two step question.

First create a TWikiSkins that mimics your corporate look.

Then create a search form and result page. You can combine those together into one page. FormattedSearchFormTesting is a somewhat complex example. You can reduce that to show the only fields you want. You can format the result to any format you want. For example, the search format "[[$topic]] - $date %BR% $summary %BR%%BR%" produces this search result.

Thanks for that Peter. Yes, that's right i am trying to show results in my company's corporate image.

I've duplicated view.tmpl and renamed it view.intranet.tmpl and changed the background color to #000000 instead of #ffffff just for testing purposes.

However, when i try to use the skin it doesn't seem to be refering to my view.intranet.tmpl file.

e.g. my url i am testing with is http://mydomain/twiki/bin/view/DBAdapter/DAPHostingEnvironment?skin=view.intranet.tmpl

Am I appending the url correctly?

Stuart, you want ?skin=intranet rather than ?skin=view.intranet.tmpl

It's done that way so the same skin name (intranet) can pick up edit.intranet.tmpl, preview.intranet.tmpl etc. as and when you define them.

If i want to change the template to have a certain skin, say "intranet" like as discussed what would be the easiest way to do it. Is there a particular template i should use to copy to begin with? When I try to append the URL with ?skin=intranet (the file in templates is still called view.intranet.tmpl which was a copy of view.tmpl) it doesn't seem to have an affect even though the bgcolor should be black..

Any help would be appreciated.
