We removed the previous search function, because it didn't work: #640

This ticket is about adding a new, working one. I don't know whether any plans about this exist, yet. @max.mehl do you know more?

No plans yet. Search is a real pain, and we tried Yacy and this local search already. The problem is our very custom and static build system.

I'm afraid we won't find a neat solution, unless someone has experience and time to try something else.

Another way would be to set up an own or use an external meta search engine like MetaGer or Searchx. A few tests presented that the results are usable, and we would circumvent writing our own HTML/XML->search engine parser.

How should we integrate the search page with the rest of the website?
Should we add a search box or a link in the sidebar?

I guess most user-friendly is a search field directly on the page, so probably best in the header somewhere (and menu for mobile view respectively).
