AdvSearchForm Snippet

This snippet displays a search form for AdvSearch.


Simply place wherever you want a SearchForm to render, and add the 'landing' property to the call to specify the Resource where the AdvSearch snippet call is located (which is where the results will display).

[[!AdvSearchForm? &landing=`82`]]

If you'd like the results to show on the same page, simply place the AdvSearch snippet call below the AdvSearchForm call, and don't specify a 'landing' parameter.
