New Feature - Additional Search Result Details
We've recently added the ability to change the text displayed below each catalog record in your search results. The first two fields you share online always act as the link to the full catalog record. In the past, a short piece of text highlighting the word or phrase you searched for would appear below these first two fields. This highlighted text option is still available along with two new options: Blank and Third Field.

Follow the steps below to update the search results text on your site.
  1. Sign into
  2. Select the Site tab.
  3. Find the dropdown menu for "Search Results Text".
  4. Select the option you want to use for your site (Highlighted Word, Third Field, or Blank).
  5. Once you have made your changes, click the Update Museum button at the top or bottom of your page to save the changes.
  6. Click the Open Web site link at the top of your page to open your website and perform a search to see your changes.
If you have any questions or would like assistance, please email or give us a call. We're happy to help!
