Advanced Search Page

I am looking to insert the "advanced search" into a dedicated advanced search page. I normally use a widget - which does not work here. How may I achieve this?

    I used a neat little plugin called:

    Widgetize Pages Light

    …..always set the page to full width. Basically any content which is contained in the widgets can be included into a page or post.

    – set a new “sidebar” called search [or your choice]
    – insert the required advanced search widget into that sidebar
    – insert that sidebar shortcode into the required page/post
    – set page width to full width [unless you have time to fiddle around with their clever CSS set up – which I dont]

    et voila! Bobs your uncle!

    hope that helps?

    Sorry to rip up in this old thread, but I have a question regarding this. When you do put this widget on a page for itself, isn’t it possible to give the widget or new page an alternate style, class, ID or something else?

    Because, if you start to change the css on the widget on this page, it will also change the styles of the widget in the sidebar, which I don’t wan’t to do.

    I hope you will
