Module 2: Checkpoint 12—Search
Websites must display a search input field followed by a submit button labelled 'Search'.
All Queensland Government sites must conform to the requirements of Module 5: Search results presentation.
Benefits of conformance
- Users are more likely to use a type-in search box rather than a link to 'search'.
Risks of non-conformance
- The user's ability to navigate via the search functionality is reduced.
- If users prefer to use search, they cannot immediately identify where to go, and so will use a different search engine.
Agencies should refer to Module 5: Search results presentation for more information on this topic.
