I am new to SharePoint 2010 but I have managed to build a few pages in SharePoint designer 2010.

I could do with having the search box feature adding to my custom built page. When I try to add search part from designer I get error 404.

Is there any way of adding the site search facility to a custom built page?

Sorry if this is something basic but I can't get my head around.

make sure your developing a webpart page. Once created you then can go into code view in SPD and then add the search webpart within PlaceHolderMain tag.

1) create a webpart page

enter image description here

2) select advanced mode

enter image description here

3) at the bottom select split to view code and design view

enter image description here

4) select main placeholder where you want to add the search box

enter image description here

5) top menu select insert -> then select "web part" -> under search select "Search Box"

enter image description here

6) search box is now added to the form. so you can save

I don't want all the bar etc at the top only just to show the search bar. So it can search the entire site behind that page. I would have thought there would be a way in a standard page to just insert a search facility but there does not seem to be.
