How to add a standalone static Page?

Hi,

I am integration Google Search to my hugo website. Now I need to create an extra search page!

How can I add search.html in my hugo website. I’ve tried it by putting it in layouts>_default and other directories but that doesn’t work!

I want my search page url to be https://site/search

Anything placed in the “static” directory will be copied over as is by Hugo.

Here’s something you can try
If you already have the code for the search page.

  1. Create the search layout and place the code you already have for the search page(search.html in layouts/_defaults)
  2. Create “content/search.md” or “content/search/_index.md” with the following front matter fields
---
title: "Search"
sitemap:
  priority : 0.1
layout: "search"
---

and that’s it. You can then add it into your menu
