Silly question but is there anybody out there who is using the google search bar integrated in the communities vs the lithium out of the box search?
Google search is the major search engine and familiar to a large population of users. I wonder if there are benefits to integrating google search within the community but realize this might be quite unorthodox...
Any feedback or thoughts on this topic? :-) Welcome them all
Solved! Go to Solution.
3rd party search tools can complement Lithium's native search if you want to include other subdomains or setup federated search, but I would not replace native Lithium search with them. You lose the ability to filter by important community specific metadata (accepted solutions, kudos..etc).
community.arubanetworks.com uses Google Search Appliance for global search, it's added to the search box as a 4th option (in addition to community, user, TKB)
But they did not actually implement google search as a replacement to the native community search, right?
