Yes, it is easy to create a custom search page for your entire site or for selected directories within your site. Learn how at Creating a Customized Search. Just select the Personal site search on the Options page.
We cannot place redirects on the server itself, but if you leave BU and want to redirect the address of your web site, you can change your home page entry in the BU Directory.
Go to online learning pages or attend free HTML classes.
Due to security restrictions, individual or personal Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts are not permitted on people.bu.edu. You do have access to the PonyExpress script to create online forms.
