I developed a custom Google Search App that integrates into a WordPress webpage. The application's goal is to enable users to search for specific school names only within selected company domains. Once users find the list of schools, they can click on the search results and be redirected to a selected school page. Each school webpage resides on its own subdomain.
The client's request was for an external search capability on the website for these schools, as the existing search functionality did not allow such searches.
I developed an application using React that can plug into their WordPress website via a plugin. This application interacts with Google’s Custom Search JSON API and allows users to specify the domain names and keywords targeted for searches.
An added advantage of developing this custom search app is that I could manipulate the data structure to only return what was necessary. Additionally, I could tailor the styling so that the app's design aligns with the existing website design.
