Search Standalone Snippet


The purpose of this widget is to display a search engine for searching the specified knowledge base (KbId).

During a search, an autocompletion is displayed with suggestions. If a search is validated via the "ENTER" key or the click on the search button, the user will be directed to the FAQ in question with the search carried out.


The installation of the solution is done via the integration of the javascript code snippet before the closing tag </body> on the page or pages where it should be displayed.


Add in your HTML code a container with an identifier which will display the widget at the location of your choice on the<div id="containerId_OF_YOUR_CHOICE"></div>. This identifier must be specified in the containerId option.

<div id="containerId_OF_YOUR_CHOICE"></div>


Integrate the Javascript snippet just before closing the </body> tag. The Smart Tribune script must be loaded as far downstream as possible in the script loading chain in order to avoid possible conflicts with the scripts present on the client page.

<script type="text/javascript">
window.addEventListener('STSearchStandaloneLoaded', function (e) {
kbId: 2,
locale: 'en',
cookieOptin: true,

thematics: ['category-1'],
