create new tag
, view all tags


I have a protected TWiki (on HTTPS:) that is published to a static HTML site (same URL, but HTTP:) using PublishContrib. With each publication, each web's WebSearch page is also published, but the search feature on these pages does not function properly (since it's not really within the TWiki site): instead of returning search results, clicking the "Search" button simply returns the user to the same page with no results, regardless of any search terms entered.

Is there a way to customize the published pages so that clicking "Search" will bring the user to the HTTPS version of the same search page, which should return the proper results? If possible, I'd also like to add a custom message to the static pages to let the user know what is going on (and that they will need to log in before viewing results).

I know how to customize published pages universally throughout a site using skin templates, but how does one customize the output of a single page (add descriptive text, hide the search bar, etc.)?

Likewise, one can use STARTPUBLISH and STOPPUBLISH tags to hide content, but is there a way to add custom content to page that is displayed only on published pages?

Can someone tell me how the INCLUDE line that calls for the TWIKIWEB.WebSearch script on each WebSearch topic page can be hidden from the publishing process? Surrounding it with a set of STOPPUBLISH and STARTPUBLISH tags doesn't seem to work.

I haven't been able to figure out how to do this.

I can't test this, but I wonder if it would work to simply put something like this at the bottom of the page:


Sorry, Web Search is only available on the development site.
