Quick Tips
Adding a Search Form
You can put a search box in any of your static html pages and get it to run a search in your store and return a list of product matches. 

Put the following html form code anywhere you want and you will get a search box for your products.  Code in red must be changed to your domain name, store code, and images.  If you are using a WYSIWYG HTML editor, you can paste the basic code in and edit it to your liking.   If not simply select the code for the search bos that you like best from the list below and edit the bold italic text to the table size, color, justification, and button image you want.


Basic Search Box: This is a basic search box that is transparent and has no borders.  For this search box you will need to insert the code below and save this image:

<form METHOD="post" ACTION="http://www.YOURSITE.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?">
<input type="hidden" name="Store_Code" value="YOURSTORE"><input type="hidden" name="Screen"
value="SRCH"><div align="center"><center><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td height="35"><div align="center"><center><p><font face="Arial"><small><input
TYPE="text" NAME="Search" SIZE="15" VALUE= ""></small></font></td>
</tr>
<tr align="center">
<td height="30"><small><font face="Arial"><div align="center"><center><p><input
type="image" src="srchgif.gif" border="0" alt="find" WIDTH="75" HEIGHT="25"></font></small></td>
</tr>
</table>
</center></div>
</form>

*Remember to change the image src to the correct path for the image you want to use.
