    Do you want to add a Google search form to your site? Try this:

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> forum_list

    Add the red code, and change the blue code to your domain name:

    <xen:container var="$head.canonical"><link rel="canonical" href="{xen:link 'canonical:index'}" /></xen:container>
    <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.boardDescription}"><xen:container var="$head.description">
    	<meta name="description" content="{$xenOptions.boardDescription}" /></xen:container></xen:if>
    <xen:container var="$head.openGraph">
    	<xen:include template="open_graph_meta">
    		<xen:set var="$url">{xen:link 'canonical:index'}</xen:set>
    		<xen:set var="$title">{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</xen:set>
    <xen:hook name="forum_list_nodes">
    	<xen:if is="{$renderedNodes}"><xen:include template="node_list" /></xen:if>
    	<xen:edithint template="sidebar.css" />
    	<div class="section">
    		<div class="secondaryContent">
    			<h3>Google This Site</h3>
    			<form method="get" action="http://www.google.com/search">
    				<input type="text" name="q" placeholder="Search..." size="31" maxlength="255" value="" /><br />
    				<input type="hidden" name="sitesearch" value="yoursite.com" />
    				<input type="submit" value="Search" />
    	<xen:hook name="forum_list_sidebar">
    		<xen:include template="sidebar_online_users" />
    		<!-- block: forum_stats -->
    		<div class="section">
    			<div class="secondaryContent statsList" id="boardStats">
    				<h3>{xen:phrase forum_statistics}</h3>
    				<div class="pairsJustified">
    					<dl class="discussionCount"><dt>{xen:phrase discussions}:</dt>
    						<dd>{xen:number $boardTotals.discussions}</dd></dl>
    					<dl class="messageCount"><dt>{xen:phrase messages}:</dt>
    						<dd>{xen:number $boardTotals.messages}</dd></dl>
    					<dl class="memberCount"><dt>{xen:phrase members_count}:</dt>
    						<dd>{xen:number $boardTotals.users}</dd></dl>
    					<dl><dt>{xen:phrase latest_member}:</dt>
    						<dd><xen:username user="$boardTotals.latestUser" /></dd></dl>
    					<!-- slot: forum_stats_extra -->
    		<!-- end block: forum_stats -->
    		<xen:include template="sidebar_share_page">
    			<xen:set var="$url">{xen:link canonical:index}</xen:set>
    It will show in the sidebar on the index page, like this:

    Will this work with Adsense search code as well? We'd like to incorporate adsense search into our forum. I'm sure others would like this too.

    Sorry I don't use Adsense. I am only familiar with their site search feature.

    If Adsense offers a different search feature then you can probably find that inside of your Adsense account.
