Search Box For Oxwall

Search Box For Oxwall

The Oxwall software generally does not have the feature of searching all website pages (the only plugin available in store with such feature is not free). This feature may come in Oxwall 1.6, but we don’t know that just yet.

While we keep our fingers crossed, awaiting the ‘most wanted’ update of all time, I have decided to gather up my lazy bones and find a solution for this all-important feature.

Search Box: What does it mean?


Many Oxwall users have been asking me to make a widget like this for the past few months. But if you are asking this question, I wouldn’t say that I’m surprised but I will let you see what you have been missing all this while.

Currently, the Oxwall open source software will let you use the search function for some specific pages such as the forum pages (which doesn’t work quite often) and users search pages. Now what happens if a particular user wants to search for some specific videos, blog posts, events, photos or even Newsfeed items?

Of course, such feature is not available, at least on the oxwall software at the moment. So I embarked on a task to make it possible for  EWT loyal readers. The development is in progress, we are currently testing this feature on the EWT developers page , it is expected to be available for general use within the next 5 business days.

Why I mine telling you this?

Well, I feel that makes me less of a troll 🙂 This is my own way of letting those of you who felt that I have totally ignored their messages into my private activities and development and to know that I’m working towards their request with the best of my knowledge and their interest at heart.

Also, if you feel that you need to suggest something to include in our already large marquee of development, feel free to leave me a PM on Nairatrain or contact us via EWT contact form.

Meanwhile, take a second to share this with your friends and do not shy away from leaving your thoughts on this on the comment section.
