Getting rapid search pro set up has been a nightmare. Thanks to the help from Ed and Jonathan at Nimblehost, I was able to set it up correctly. The only part remaining is setting the correct path on each page. That's where I get stuck. I'm totally ignorant about coding (though trying to learn slowly) and I'm sure its a pretty simple task once I figure out exactly how to modify the default code which is: <form action="/path/to/rapidsearch/pro/" method="get"> <fieldset> <input type="text" name="query" value=""/> <input type="submit" value="Search"/> </fieldset> </form>
The last piece of advice I received from Ed was : In the form that you’re using you have to provide a ‘path’, a ‘url’, to the location. Right now you’ve left the ‘default’ code in place which doesn’t reflect your setup.
You can try using an ‘Absolute’ – Full URL – and point it to the RSPro page.
If that doesn’t work, then you’ll need to use a ‘Relative’ path. Having investigated things, it looks like each ‘instance’ will need to be customized for each page of your site.
All I'm asking is for someone to show me what would the correct path setup be using one of my pages. So if one of my pages is: http://www.mysite.com/page1
how do I write the correct path using both an "absolute"-full url pointed to the rspro page and a "relative" path for the page as per the last information given by Ed.
Thanks in advance for any assistance .
