inserting google into search confluence cloud

Hi Guys, 

I'm helping a client setup a basic confluence site and they have asked about embedding some HTML. It seems very easy in a server based installation, but more problematic in a cloud version. 

Specifically, they are after two a google search box (that searched the internet not the confluence site).

I downloaded an add-in that enable embedding html. Is that the best way to do this given these guys are a cloud instance?

I'm also struggling to find the right code that will allow a google search. Can't believe it's not plastered everywhere!

Assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Damian,

I've just had a go and have got a search box working using the HTML macro included in our add-on, Macro Toolbox for Cloud ( I've tested it in Chrome/IE11, attached the code I used and a screenshot of how it looks.

Let me know how you go, happy to help with any issues smile

<form method="get" class="aui" action="" target="_blank">
    <input class="text long-field" type="text" name="q" placeholder="Enter your Google search">
    <button type="submit" class="aui-button aui-button-primary">Search</Button>
