    Hello,
    I use Bluehost for web hosting and have recently started to use Weebly to build our website/online store. I would like to know how to add a search box so our customers will be able to find items within our store (Steve's Lost Land of Toys). I have tried Pico and Atomz but the search results open in a way which we do not want (outside of our website/store). What we are looking for is a search box which displays results like the search on this site "Cyberguys", or like ebay, Newegg, etc.
    Thank you for your time and help!!

    What store software are you using? Bespoke or a package?

    If a package it should be an option somewhere within it. If bespoke we will need a few more details but have a look at Google custom search here it may do what you want.

    This is how the search results have been showing up... not in our website. http://www.steveslostlandoftoys.com/websitesearchresults.jpg I would like the customer to be direct to the page. Like if they are looking for Batman I would like it to go to the Batman page. So is this because I am using Weebly or is it because I need to change some coding (which I would need help with), or do I need to use another search box tool/software. Thnx!!

    Why not look at Weebly's suggestion for a search box here
    The link shows you how to customise Google search just for your site
