Creating HTML macro that will search in multiple defined wiki pages


I have a few wiki spaces and would like to create a search bar using the HTML macro that will allow me to search within only the few spaces I've defined. I'm not handy with HTML and would like some help with an HTML macro that will allow me to do this. I know the newer version of Confluence has this ability but my org will not update to a new version.

Thank you!

Here is sample you can use and start your work.

It contain a simple html form with text field, and when you submit this form search result page is opened.

There is array called 'SPACES_KEY' in which you can provide all spaces you want to search with this particular form.


<form id="space-search" method="GET">
<input type="text" name="query" id="search-query"/>
<input type="submit" value="Search" />
AJS.toInit(function () {
var SPACES_KEY = ['CM']; //list all space you want to search in this array
var $ = AJS.$;

$('#space-search').submit(function (e) {
var q = $('#search-query').val();
var query = 'siteSearch ~ "' + q + '" AND space in (' + SPACES_KEY.join(",") + ')';

window.location = 'dosearchsite.action?cql=' + encodeURI(query); //open new page with search results

return false;


This worked perfectly, thank you!
