I want a domain search widget on my website, how do I make one?

We don't provide domain search widgets due to the fact that there are millions of WordPress themes out there, and making one to match every one is impossible! So here's the basic steps on how to put together the widget, you can adjust the styles yourself using CSS.

Create a new text widget in your Widgets section in WordPress, in the widget you will need to add the following HTML

<form method="post" action="YOUR_BRIDGE_URL_DOMAINCHECKER_TARGET">
Domain <input type="text" name="domain" placeholder="Domain name"/> . <select name="tlds[]">
<option value=".com">.com</option><option value=".net">.net</option><option value=".org">.org</option>
</select> <input type="submit" value="Search"/>
</form>

For YOUR_BRIDGE_URL_DOMAINCHECKER_TARGET please use the following guide:
- If your bridge URL is http://yourdomain.tld/whmcs-bridge/
1) If you are using Pretty Permalinks your URL will be: http://yourdomain.tld/whmcs-bridge/domainchecker/
2) If you are not using Pretty Permalinks your URL will be: http://yourdomain.tld/whmcs-bridge/?ccce=domainchecker

The select box is optional, it should work with just the "domain" text box if you dont want a TLD drop down. You can also change it to checkboxes for multiple domain search, just keep each checkbox named "tlds[]".

You will probably need to disable CAPTCHA on domain lookups for this to work!
