Creating your Search Page
Fortunately, there are many options available that you can utilize to advance the site search and index feature of your website. Instead of just having a simple search bar on your site, you can create your very own search page and customize it. With a dedicated search page, the visitor's experience will be enhanced. To accomplish this task, you will require backend access to the website. This can be done using a file manager or through FTP.
On accessing the database of WordPress, you will have to locate the page.ph file. This file defines the web pages basic structure and you can create the template for the search page here. This way, you can edit and alter the search bar in whatever way you want. This task will obviously require coding, time, and effort but it will save you cash, as you will not have to purchase a plugin.
