Where to find CSE's unique ID?

Note: Please refer to the following article for the latest update on : Where to find the Google CSE ID?

If you are using the googleSearch (CSE) component that allows you to add the Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) to your Joomla site, you will need to enter CSE's unique ID.

So, where do find this CSE's unique ID?

Locating CSE's unique ID

  1. Logon to your Google Adsense Account.
  2. Goto manage page: http://www.google.com/cse/manage/all
  3. Click "Control Panel"
  4. At the last row, you will see Search engine unique ID. This is your CSE's unique ID.
  5. Note that there are 2 types of CSE unique ID:
    • partner-pub- + 16 digits + ':' + 11 alphanumeric characters
      e.g. partner-pub-1234567890123456:o82mia-gptl
    • 21 digits + ':' + 11 alphanumeric characters

When I added the CSE's unique ID without the "partner-pub-" the results don't appear, I just get an error page.
My ID is all numbers anyway, there are no letters in it...

Hi everyone, I have fixed this box issue, it was just the formatting in adsense.
Take care all, remember life's too short! so live it!
