How can I create a searchable page within the documentation template?

I am looking for the best solution to make it easy for our users to search through FAQs on a page (within a documentation template). At this time I'm working with 30 FAQs but this list will grow. How can I make it easy for the user to quickly find the answer they are looking for?

Other than adding a Warning/Tip that says "use Ctrl + F"...

You should be able to add a search field that will only search the page it is on, plus it's subpages. To do this enter a curly bracket and start typing search:


When you do this a list of macros will appear, one of which is called something like page tree search. Select that and save your page. You should then be able to use that, assuming that your FAQ pages are sub pages of course. :)

This helps but now I must ask... how do I set up up subpages (within the documentation template) for my FAQ to be?

Nevermind, got it!
