# Enable Search

The search uses a Content API Key in order to work, that means the first thing you have to do is to generate a new Key, to do so please follow these steps:

  1. In the Ghost Admin head to the Integrations page and press the Add custom integration button. You can name it as you like but I recommend that you name it Search.

  2. Copy the Content API Key.

  3. Then head to the Code injection page and paste the following code into the Site Header block:

  const ghostSearchApiKey = 'YOUR_CONTENT_API_KEY_GOES_HERE'

Remember that you have to replace YOUR_CONTENT_API_KEY_GOES_HERE with the Content API Key that you got in step 2.

  1. Now head to the Pages page and press the New page button.

  2. Name this page as Search.

  3. Publish the page.


It is important that the Page URL value in the page settings is search, otherwise it will not work properly.
