I have been asked to put a search page on our site where you would put a specific postcode in and it would tell you what group to contact. I have read that you should use a page.php template file. Is there one in blog pro or do I download a plugin?August 30, 2018 at 12:53 am #78496
First of all thank you very much for using the theme.
As for your query, we are not quite clear what you exactly referring to.
If you want to have the contact page then you have to create the page from the Admin Panel > pages > Add new add activate the plugin “Contact Form 7”.
After the activation just create the contact form from Admin Panel > Contact. Now a shotcode will be generated. Add this short code in the page that you have created and this will allow you to have the form through which your customer can contact you.
If this not what you meant then please explain it more clearly so that we can help you.

Hi, thank you for responding to my post.
I have been asked to create a page with a search function so that people can put their postcode in and it will search for the “chamber of commerce” in their area. I would need to be able to input all of the postcode and add the chamber of commerce for that postcode
e.g. someone puts 4021 in the search field and hits search and “redcliffe peninsula chamber of commerce” is returned
A bonus would be if I could set it up that when they clicked on “redcliffe peninsula chamber of commerce it was actually had an embedded weblink to their webpage.
Hope that makes sense. There is less than 100 postcodes in our area.

Since the search page as you wanted is not available in the theme and also to make the search page as you require higher code customization.
So our suggestion to you is hire a professional developer so that you theme won’t be affected in any way.
To hire a developer please refer to below given link:

You can implement a Google search with a basic HTML form:
<form action=”https://google.com/search” method=”get”>
<input type=”text” name=”q”>
This is an extremely basic, simple and ugly form: write something inside of it, click enter and a list of Google search results will appear
