Many organizations have their own internal search engines and requirements, or may not support Perl CGI. If you need to use your own search engine, integrate it with Author-it as follows:
- Implement your search engine and test it to make sure you can index and search the Author-it published HTML on your site. Avoid indexing any of the contents pages (toc###.htm), the index (indexpage.htm), tab pages (tab_toc.htm, tab_index.htm, tab_search.htm), or any other file you do not want returned by a search.
- Modify the tab_toc.htm, and tab_index.htm files to link to your own search engine page instead of our CGI scripts. The current default is cgi-bin/search_form.cgi?SEARCHDIR=tripane.
Note: You may want to rename and save these changed files. If you do, make sure that reference the new files in the HTML Additional Files property of your Author-it book.
where /myfolder is the folder location of your Author-it book.
