The Search Box Gallery Tile

How to use

When you place the search box onto the page, you're able to configure it using one of the following settings: SharePoint, Google, Bing, Yahoo or Ask. However, if you have a custom search path or want to link to a search engine that is not part of the preset search engines, then you will be able to put in a custom link instead.
