Lots of WordPress sites have a Search Widget in a sidebar. So what’s the benefit of a search function? The Search Widget allows users to search for any content on your site including posts, pages and categories. When you drag the Search Widget to your sidebar, you’ll be prompted to give the Widget a title like “Search the Site” or “Can’t find it?”.
When users enter a word or phrase and click “Search”, they will be taken to a page or list of posts that contain that word or phrase. As your site becomes larger and more complex, the Search Widget becomes a great tool.
