googleSearch (CSE) component
Written by kksou   
Tuesday, 06 January 2009

This is the good old googleSearch component with one key difference: it uses Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE) at the backend.

Very Important

Please make sure you have set up a Custom Search Engine in your Google's account before you can use this component. Once you have created a Custom Search Engine, Google will assign a unique CSE ID to that engine. You need to enter the CSE ID into the config page to start using this component.


Latest Version

v1.6 (for Joomla 1.6), v1.7 (for Joomla 1.7), v2.5 (for Joomla 2.5)
Released March 15, 2012

Native version of the googleSearch (CSE) component for Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5!

What's exciting about Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE)

There are many exciting new features in Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE). Here are just some of them:

  • Search multiple sites. If you have set up three different sites, say site1.com, site2.com, and site3.com, the CSE now allows you search only within these three sites.
  • Refinements: Refinements are labels that you apply to websites. They appear as a list of links above search results, offering users a way to narrow their search. When a user clicks a refinement label, the sites that you have labeled are given priority in the results. In addition to labeling sites, you can also specify additional words that are added to users' queries when they click a label, providing even more targeted results.
  • You can see a live demo of refinements on this site. Enter a keyword, say "menu" in the search box at the top-left navigation area. Did you see the 8 refinement labels there: "PHP-GTK2", "Joomla", "PHP-GTK2 sample codes", "Joomla forum articles", etc. Try clicking on any of these refinement labels. It's pretty cool!

There are many other exciting and advanced features in Google's new Custom Search Engine.

You can see the complete official Google document here: http://www.google.com/coop/docs/cse/

Differences between googleSearch (CSE) and googleSearch components

  • googleSearch component: uses the traditional Google Search API.
  • For this component, you can just install and use right away. You do not even need a Google Adsense ID.

  • googleSearch (CSE) component: uses Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE).
  • For this component, you'll have to first set up a Custom Search Engine in your Google's account. Once you have created a Custom Search Engine, Google will assign a unique CSE ID to that engine. You need to enter the CSE ID into the config page to start using this component.

Add more power with googleSearch (CSE) module

You might also want to complement this component with the googleSearch (CSE) module: googleSearch (CSE) module

The module allows you to add an additional Google search box as a module. This means that you can place the search form in any module position you like. When the user clicks the search button, the search result will be displayed in your Joomla main body by the googleSearch component.

Demo

The search on this site is using the googleSearch (CSE) component/module. You can test it in the first module on the left menu.

How to install

Set up is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Install the component
  2. Enter your Custom Search Engine's unique identifier (cx) - Where to find this?
  3. Enter your desired width of the search result

That's all you need to get started! You'll now have Google Search right inside your Joomla page!

Tutorial

There is a very detailed tutorial on how to setup the googleSearch (CSE) component here: How to Create a Google Custom Search Engine in a Joomla Site


Please make sure you have set up a Custom Search Engine in your Google's account before you can use this component. Once you have created a Custom Search Engine, Google will assign a unique CSE ID to that engine. You need to enter the CSE ID into the config page to start using this component.

For advanced settings, please refer to Customizing the Component.

sh404SEF users

If you are using the googleSearch component together with sh404SEF:

  1. Go to sh404SEF Configuration.
  2. Click the "By Component" tab.
  3. Look for the component "googleSearch(CSE)", and set the first column as "skip".
  4. Don't forget to click "Save".

Please also make sure you read the following article:

Running googleSearch with sh404SEF: fixing the error 'JFolder::folder: Path is not a folder: /language'

"JFolder::folder: Path is not a folder: /language"

For those of you who get this error message, please refer to the article below for the solution:

Running googleSearch with sh404SEF: fixing the error 'JFolder::folder: Path is not a folder: /language'

Download

Very Important: Please make sure you have set up a Custom Search Engine in your Google's account before you can use this component. Once you have created a Custom Search Engine, Google will assign a unique CSE ID to that engine. You need to enter the CSE ID into the config page to start using this component.


Remove the "Powered by" links

If you find the component useful and would like to use the component without the "Powered-by" links, you may do so by purchasing a "Powered-by" removal license for only USD $10.

Secured payment is processed by 2checkout.com. All major credit cards are accepted, including Visa, Mastercard and American Express, etc. You can also pay by PayPal. Once the transaction is completed, you will be given a link to download the version with the "Powered by" links removed.

Version History

  1. Version 1.00: released Jan 6, 2009.

Customizing the Component

Please refer to the googleSearch: Customizing the Component. They are about the same.

Note that for the new Google CSE, many of the options are now stored right on Google's server, e.g. the colors for the title, background, links, etc.

Note also that the Google Adsense ID and channel ID is now encoded right inside the CSE ID.

Styling the Component and Module using CSS

You can set the style of the search field and search button to the exact format you want through CSS, for example, the font family, font size, foreground and background color, margin, border, etc.

I've designed such that the css style for the component is independent of that of the module. So you can have different styles for the component and the module.

For example, if you're using the default Joomla 1.5 template, define the following style in <joomla root folder>/templates/rhuk_milkyway/css/template.css. If you're using the default Joomla 1.0 template, define the following style in <joomla root folder>/templates/rhuk_solarflare_ii/css/template_css.css.

  1. Search Box
  2. Component Module
    div.googleSearch_cse input.inputbox {
    	font-family: Verdana;
    	font-size: 12pt;
    	font-style: italic;
    }
    
    div.mod_googleSearch_cse input.inputbox {
    	font-family: Verdana;
    	font-size: 12pt;
    	font-style: italic;
    }
    

  3. Search Button
  4. Component Module
    div.googleSearch_cse input.button {
    	font-family: "Arial Bold";
    	font-size: 12pt;
    	margin-left: 4px;
    }
    
    div.mod_googleSearch_cse input.button {
    	font-family: "Arial Bold";
    	font-size: 12pt;
    	margin-top: 6px;
    }
    
  5. The entire search form (use this if you want to set the background or draw a border around the entire search form)
  6. Component Module
    div.googleSearch_cse {
    	background: #33FF66;
    }
    
    div.mod_googleSearch_cse {
    	background: #33FF66;
    }
    

Replacing the Default Search module of Joomla 1.5

Suppose you want to replace the default search module of Joomla 1.5 using the default rhuk_milkyway template, here are the steps:

  1. Log on as administrator and go to Module Manager.
  2. In the input box "Filter:", enter "search".
  3. You should now see two items: Search (the default mod_search), and Google Search.
  4. Make sure Enabled is set to No for mod_search, and Yes for Google Search.
  5. Assuming that you're using the default Joomla 1.5 template, define the following style in <joomla root folder>/templates/rhuk_milkyway/css/template.css
    div.mod_googleSearch table {
    	margin-left: auto;
    	margin-right: 6px;
    }
    
    div.mod_googleSearch input {
    	width: 145px;
    	margin: 15px 0 9px 0;
    }
    

You should now see the googleSearch module instead of the default mod_search in module position user4.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1: googleSearch_cse does not work, and I'm using sh404SEF on my website.

A1: For googleSearch_cse to work on websites using sh404SEF, please refer to the solution here.

Q2: googleSearch_cse returns the error "Google Error: Bad Request. Your client has issued an illegal request."

A2: This error usually occur when you did not enter a correct CSE ID in the config page.

Q3: I got the error message "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class googleSearch_DisplayForm in googlesearch.lib.php on line 12"

A4: This is because you are trying to run the googleSearch_cse with an older version of googleSearch. To run both together, you need to upgrade googleSearch to v1.0.14/v1.5.14.

Q4: Can I run googleSearch_cse and googleSearch together on the same page?

A3:Yes, you can, as long as you've upgraded googleSearch to v1.0.14/v1.5.14.

Please make sure you have set up a Custom Search Engine in your Google's account before you can use this component. Once you have created a Custom Search Engine, Google will assign a unique CSE ID to that engine. You need to enter the CSE ID into the config page to start using this component.

Dear sir, I got this error when trying to install it on my Joomla 2.5

Hi

I had the same error. My solution is to unzip the component and change two folder names to small types:
components/com_google_Sear chCSE
to componets/com_googlesearc hcse

and

administrator/components/com_google_Sear chCSE
to administrator/components/com_googlesearc hcse

Then zip the whole Files again and upload as normal.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Hi Speciman, Thanks for highlighting this. Didn't realize the typo for the Joomla 2.5 installer. (Tested the installer on windows which runs ok because it's case-insensitive.)

Hi Ryan, have just reuploaded the installer for Joomla 2.5. Please try it again and let me know if it works this time. (Note: the installer for Joomla 1.6 and 1.7 are ok)

Can I pass Google search input values from a page not part of my Joomla template into my joomla googleSearch (CSE) component page?

I want to pass search values from a basic html home page to my joomla googleSearch (CSE) component page?

is it possible and how would you suggest I go about it?

# netinsco 2012-04-23 20:23
PS. I have successfully set up your component and it works great within the Joomla framework. I just want to pass the search values into the googleSearch (CSE) component page to display the results from a basic HTML page not part of the Joomla framework.

Thanks Again
 
 
# kksou 2012-04-26 08:36
Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

1) Enter any search term in the search field of your joomla googleSearch (CSE) component page.

2) Click the search button.

3) In the search result page, copy the entire URL and paste them into the notepad.

4) Take a close look at the entire URL string. The search string is in the parameter q=keyword.

5) So from your basic html page, as long as you pass in the same URL string and replace q=keyword with your own keyword, it will redirect to your joomla page.

Please give it a try and let me know if it works.

Regards,
/kksou

Hi all,
I am working with Joomla 2.5.

I have the search box on header section. I installed the google search module and google CSE component, After enable the google module, its shows an error - "You need to install the latest version of googleSearch component to run this module! ".
 
 
# kksou 2012-06-04 21:38
Hi,

Please make sure you install the right version.

1) component: from this page.
http://www.kksou.com/php-gtk2/Joomla-Gadgets/googleSearch-CSE-component.php#download

2) module: http://www.kksou.com/php-gtk2/Joomla-Gadgets/googleSearch-CSE-module.php

Please make sure you have the latest version of (1) and (2). Would suggest you uninstall both and reinstall again.

Also, please please test (1) the component first. Make sure it's working first before you install (2) the module.

Regards,
/kksou
 
 
# Vinothkannan 2012-06-04 21:50
Hi,
Now the search box is displaying, but results are not displaying inside the page.
Do we need to do any changes from admin panel?
 
 
# kksou 2012-06-04 22:07
Hi,

Do not leave any usename or password here. It's too risky.

Your component does not seem to work right.

As mentioned above, please uninstall both component and module again. Then install just the component. Make sure that the component is working before you install the module. The module runs on top of the component. So you have to make sure that the component is working first.

Regards,
/kksou

# kksou 2012-06-09 06:07
Hi,

Please refer to reply to Scott below. It might be due to the SEF plugin that you're using (e.g. sh404SEF)

If you're using sh404SEF, please make sure you sure you turn off SEF for the component "googleSearch(CS E)". For details, please refer to: sh404SEF users: http://www.kksou.com/php-gtk2/Joomla-Gadgets/googleSearch-CSE-component.php#sh404SEF

If you're using other SEF plugins, then do something similar.

Please give it a try one more time and let me know if it works, ok?

Regards,
/kksou

Hi Scott,

Went to your website. Think you're using some SEF such as sh404SEF.

Please refer to the following:
sh404SEF users: http://www.kksou.com/php-gtk2/Joomla-Gadgets/googleSearch-CSE-component.php#sh404SEF

If you're using sh404SEF, please make sure you sure you turn off SEF for the component "googleSearch(CS E)".

If you're using other SEF plugins, then do something similar.

Please give it a try one more time and let me know if it works, ok?

Hi kksou

Yes, i am using ace sef

I think i did it but it still seems not to work. i went into extensions in ace sef and com_googlesearc hcse - set it to Skip prefix / menu yes

Thanks

Scott
 
 
# kksou 2012-06-09 06:31
Hi Scott,

Just went to your website.

You can see that the url has now changed, and the googleSearch(CS E) component is displaying now.

However, if you compare your googleSearch url with the one on my website (just do any search there), you will see that the url does not seem to be too right. That's why the search result is not displaying.

You might want to play around with the setting in ace sef to see if you can make it skip the googleSearch(CS E) component entirely.

Regards,
/kksou
 
 
# Zigmoid 2012-06-09 04:05
I just nee to enter the Unique CSE Id..thats it right? Don't need to care about the code provided by Google..or like where to paste it etc?

Also, would like to say that working fine for me on 2.5
 
 
# correns 2012-06-15 04:01
Thank you for this nice component!

I have a strange error though and am pretty lost.. hope you can help.

I have sh404 and htaccess on.. and your component works on the localhost. But when I uploaded it on the intranet to test, somehow the search string gets cut and it does not display any result.

For example: In localhost the url of the search string looks like this:
http://localhost/correns/index.php?
option=com_googlesearc hcse&n=30&Itemid=338&cx=00231979564560949562 8%3Akgewgbvqfxy
&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=UTF-8&q=test6&hl=ja&cr=countryJP
 
 
# correns 2012-06-15 04:02
On the server it looks like:
http://supplier2.correns.co.jp/correns/index.php?
option=com_googlesearc hcse&n=30&Itemid=338&cx=&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=&q=test&hl=

So it seems like again the language tag gets cut out. I tried your solution for Sh404, but since the content of the sh404sef.class.php has changed I coulnd't get it to work.

Really hope you can help, pls let me know if you need further information.
 
 
# kksou 2012-06-15 08:00
Hi,

What do you mean by ?since the content of the sh404sef.class.php has changed??

Did you set the googleSearch component to skip in the sh404 admin backend?

Regards,
/kksou
 
 
# Correns 2012-06-16 23:43
Thanks for you very fast reply!
Well so I have the latest Joomla and also sh404 component, and your tutorial is not actual any more. In sh404 you can not set it to skip, it says "treat as non sef" and there are other options, I tried them all but nothing works. Then if you go to the sh404sef.class.php and search for the method of your tutorial, it's still there, but the code below is totally different from your tutorial, so I don't know how to adjust.. That's what I meant. However, the strange thing is that it works on localhost.
 
 
# correns 2012-06-18 01:28
FYI, I tested it on another hoster just to check that it is not related to our servers settings. It doesn't work. :sad:

Hope you can help, thx and best Regards.
 
 
# correns 2012-06-19 01:58
I found the error, it was not related to sh404 but to Akeeba Backup.

For some reasons, the table of the googlecse component settings was excluded from the backup, so in new installations those were missing.

Of course it can be corrected manually, but still this is a big problem for me as I need many copies of my site.

Do you have an idea what can cause this?
Thanks..

As known Joomla 2.5.x has a built-in multi-language solution.
I have a site containing articles in 5 languages.
How can we implement this component in such a case that I will have 5 different modules and each will list the results based on the language?
 
 
# kksou 2012-06-29 08:13
Hi,

This is a simple component to display googleSearch result within a component - in only one language.

You might want to check joomla.org to see if there are any advanced component that can achieve what your site needs.

2) Edit the file: admin.googlesearch.lib.php

3) Goto Line: 301. You should see

Janice, very good sentence i'll place in mi my facebook wall,

I'd like to make this great component to search in google and in the site as facebook, is that possible?
 
 
# kksou 2012-10-10 08:30
Hi,

1) This is a Joomla component. So it can only be used in the Joomla framework, not in Facebook.

2) This component make use of the Google API. The Google API only searches pages that are indexed by google. Google API does not search those pages within Facebook.

I'm not too familiar with Facebook. Facebook might have its own API to search within its Facebook pages.

# rapaearch 2012-10-31 13:44
Hey,

Great job creating this. while testing i have 2 questions.

1 - do all the options in the component, like removing the google watermark, are approved on by the google adsense policy? or is that end user responsibility?

2 - can the module be used twice with different options? i mean for example i need 2 modules where one will look differently then the other. while both show results in the component.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

Thank you very for the Google CSE tools.
I must say that I tested since two years others modules of GG CSE but no one works very well for Joomla 1.5. I had to only integrated directly from the GG code when I meet your component and on a few clics it appears on my site.
Just a little question.... as I use TA-BLANK template it is as the purity 2, the GG search results appear under the user(x) positions, is there a way to hide them so the search results page will appear completely ?
Thank you

# kksou 2013-01-28 18:25
Hi,

You have only installed the component.

If you want the module, you also need the install the module here: googleSearch (CSE) module

Try to make sure that the component runs ok first. Once it's running, then install the module. The module will not work without the component.

Thanks!

Yann

Hi Yann,

Did you install both the component as well as the module?

Hi,

With Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE) API, all these are now set direct in your google adsense account.

Hi,

Not sure which part you're stuck.

Would you please elaborate a bit more?

Do you have a google adsense account? If yes, there are many tutorials in there once you're logged in that shows you how to create a search item.

Once you have created the search item with all the desired parameters, you can follow this article: Where to find CSE's unique ID?

What the googleSearch CSE component needs is this CSE unique ID. The rest of the parameters are all set in your google adsense account.

Hi kksou, once again.

I'm using this CSE module and component for over a year now but from some reason it stopped working few days ago. I re installed both module and component and imported the code again but it wont display the results. I tried by disabling all other components and modules one by one but it didn't help. It displays images but and ads but not actual results.

Ty in advance
Dean

Hi Dean,

Did you recently change the setting?

Try don't set the country. I tried that and it seems to work.

You can try this as testing: http://www.tvojservis.com/index.php?option=com_googlesearch_cse&n=30&Itemid=147&cx=010013177191668307214%3Al8agyyc1vve&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=UTF-8&q=Servis&sa=Pretra%C5%BEi&hl=sr&siteurl=

Hello,

Yes, that worked. 8)

I might have a clue why is not working when I set Serbia and Montenegro as country...

Well, "Serbia and Montenegro" as one country doesn't exist for over few years now. Nowadays those are 2 independent countries so maybe Google CSE API is don't know which one to use and it generates this bug. Maybe you should split these into 2 separate countries to choose from in the list.

Thank you for the quick response and solution.

So this component should basically search what ever is available for Google to index right?

This is definitely very good tool. I have two challenges tho.
- How to us this as part of an article? (sorry am new to Joomla :-*) .. is there a document / command. I don't want to add this to a menu.
- How to add more than one search (3 to be precise) to my site. I want users to go into appropriate search area to get relevant information. Currently it is seeding information from one CSE-ID only.

Please let me know.

This is definitely a nice utility.

I am still having issues with adjusting the width. I want the width to be dynamic and that is not happening. Currently it is all for integer value. I want to enter % value. If i want to see the site on smart phone .. it is not getting aligned and search box sticks out .. let me know how this can be achieved.

Hi,

The google search API does not allow the width to be dynamic.

The entire search result is returned by google. We are not allowed to alter the returned result from google.

Also, you can do a quick google. There is a minimum width of the search result imposed by google.

Am using googlesearch cse 1.5 with my Joomla 1.5 site. It was working great for a while and then sometime within the last month (I think), I just get a blank result for searches that should definitely get results. Any ideas??
