How to modify Search in SharePoint

Many templates (WSS or SharePoint Foundation) come with the Search box on the main page. One of the challenges with these templates is that they only perform a site wide search. The search box will not search sub-sites, people, or across site collections. You can use different templates that enable enterprise wide searching, but what if you already have an existing site collection that is already using one of these templates.

So here is an alternative. You can enable the Publishing Infrastructure on the site collection, add a search center, and disable the search box on the main site. To disable the search box you can either edit the master page (not recommended) or add the following script to the page

#s4-search area { display:none; }
