Simple search without JavaScript

I am trying to implement a simple search bar that will redirect the query to an external search engine like this:

<form action="" method="get">
  <input name="q" type="text" size="25" maxlength="255" placeholder="Search…" />
  <input type="submit" value="Search" />

But upon submitting a search term nothing happens. Changing the search engine does not solve this. Has that anything to do with Zola or am I missing something?

This is plain HTML, nothing to do with Zola

What’s strange about this is that the exact same code snippet works in Hugo. So I wonder if other Zola users have the same problem with it?

Nevermind, I figured out what the problem was. Please feel free to delete this thread.
