What Are the Search Interface Page Types?

The search interface is a single entry point providing access to the unified index content. It allows users to perform queries as well as review, sort, open, and save results. 

The Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) search interface is web-based, meaning that it can be integrated to any .aspx page and accessed through any supported browser. The following table describes the function of the four different pages available in the Coveo default web search interface.

Page Description
Initial Displays a search box and links above the search box to access the Advanced Search page, Preferences page, and the Coveo online Help.

This page appears when the search interface is first accessed, before any query is performed afterwards, the Search page appears.

Search Contains a search box and links above the search box to access the Advanced Search page, Preferences page, and the Coveo online Help as well as facets, and search results.
Advanced Search Displays advanced search fields to refine queries without using operators or field queries (see More Advanced Search).
Preferences Displays options to customize the way results are queried, displayed, and opened (see Modifying Default Search Interface Preferences).

Note: With the exception of the Search page, these pages can be removed in the Interface Editor (see Activating Search Interface Options).
