Customized search block

Recommended reading 

This topic describes the customized search block developed for the integration of Optimizely Search & Navigation with Optimizely CMS. The block is used for example to display related content on websites.

How it works

The block is available as a NuGet package for installation as part of the Optimizely CMS integration with Search & Navigation.

The feature lets editors create a block based on search criteria that they define. The resulting block displays content that satisfies the search criteria as a list of links with optional descriptions and a heading.

See Customized search block.

Styling of the block

Each part of the block rendering has its own CSS class. Below is a schematic example of the block's rendering, demonstrating all available CSS classes.

<div class="find-custom-search-block">
  <h2 class="find-custom-search-block__header">List Header</h2>
  <ul class="find-custom-search-block__list">
      <a href="url 1" class="find-custom-search-block__list__title">Title</a>
      <p class="find-custom-search-block__list__description">Description</p>
Resulting block rendering:
