Can I replace confluence seatch box with an external search engine?

How can I put my custom search engine in place of the confluence search engine?

I have an external search engine that indexes both confluence and external sites, such as my javadoc. I used refinedWiki to add an additional search box for my users. However, I'd like to replace the standard confluence search box with my search.

Is it possible to knock out the confluence search box and replace it with my own or redirect the confluence search box or augment it via an api?

Thanks

Peter

The simplest and easiest way I can think of is to replace the action attribute in the form tag of the search box using JavaScript:

<script>
AJS.toInit(function(){
    AJS.$('#quick-search').attr('action', 'test.jsp');
});
</script>

Another way is to remove the #quick-search and prepend your own search box

<script>
AJS.toInit(function(){
    AJS.$('#quick-search').remove();
    AJS.$('.aui-header-inner .aui-header-secondary .aui-nav li:first').prepend('add your searchbox here');
});
</script>
