How to Put Search box on Tumblr

Above are two screenshot of my Search Box. I looks professional and cute too. It helps to engage users with more and more page views. It helps user to search our blog what they want to read on our blog.

Tumblr Search Box

Basically, Search box works based on tags. Suppose, a visitor searched for “Google”, all posts which has been tagged with Google will be appear on search page. Isn’t it cool?

However, There is some limitations. Suppose, You never tagged “Google” and visitor searched for “Google” then in this case a blank page will be appear with the notice that nothing found with this tag or something. You can customize this page too.

Below is the HTML codes for my Search box, You can copy them and paste in your description box or under sidebar.

<form action='/search' id='nav-search' method='get'>
<input name='q' type='text' value='Search...' value='{SearchQuery}'/>

Additionally, You can customize them with some relative results if there is nothing related to that search tag. Below is exact HTML codes which i have used in my theme to show related result if there is nothing related for such tag which has been searched. You can use that and paste below HTML codes just after </block:Posts>

Save your Tumblr theme and check your new Tumblr Search box and don’t forget to replace relative links.


1. I just tried the custom search bar out, but somehow it’ll only show the latest couple of results and not scroll infinitely until the search results are over. Is there any way to prevent this?

I’m sure that there is no infinite scrolling on your search pages. Please attach page link for better reference. You can try Google search box too.
