  4. Drag the widget down into your layout area and drop it where you want it.
  5. Click the small triangle in the upper right corner of the widget and select Edit this widget.
  6. Use the title "Search Widget" or create your own, for example, "Search this Group" or "Search Me!"
  7. Select the number of results to return in the search.
  8. Select the place to perform the search. This can be any place in the community, or the entire community (which would be your "root" space).
