<!--Insert your proxy URL in the line starting with var url="-->
<!--e.g. var url="http://exproxy.mycollege.edu:2048/login?url= -->

<script type="text/javascript">
function ncmsearch(){
var url="[ my proxy URL ]https://history.paratext.com/ncm/ncm.php/r?request_type=initial_search&databases=all&detail=0&saved_set=0&Stemming=2&query="
var searchInputEl = document.getElementById("ncmSearchInput");
document.location=url + encodeURIComponent(searchInputEl.value) ;
}</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function getKeyValue(e,form){
var key=e.keyCode || e.which;
if (key==13){
ncmsearch();
}
}
</script>

Insert the search box somewhere in your html.
Make any style changes you want, but don't change the ids or names.
