Customize a Domain Search for Web users

How can I customize a Domain Search for Web users? Web users should only be able to search the single category I assign to the Web databases. Using the DomainQuery (alias) form, I want to default the search to this category (Web site) and hide the option from $$WebClient users. I also want to hide a few things on the form, like the Help button, which links to very Notes-specific information that is not useful to Web users. However, when I make these changes, Domain Search no longer works in the Notes client (but works beautifully from the Web).

Alternatively, I tried moving the DomainQuery form, SearchResults form, DBSearch and SortedContainer script libraries (and various image resources) to a different database and run the query from there. It worked "perfectly;" the query was displayed and it showed I had 38 results from the search, which was correct. However, nothing displayed in the results themselves (body field). Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

You can easily hide items from Web clients by selecting what you want to hide and in the hide when panel of the properties box, check off the hide paragraph from Web Browsers box.
