Lookup field on Site public page

I want to allow users to create records of a custom object from Site's public home page. I have created the page and can view the form correctly. I have used the standard controller for MyObject on the page. The form has two lookup fields which are two other custom objects (MyLookup1 and MyLookup2). When I click on the lookup icon, the authentication required page shows up instead of showing list of looked up object.

 

On site public access settings, I have given Read/Create access for MyObject and Read/View All permission for the objects MyLookup1and MyLookup2. All of these are custom objects created by me. How can I make sure that lookup popup will not ask for authentication?

I was able to get this working by adding Lookup Page to the 'Site Standard Pages' list.

 

However, one problem is that it does not display all matching lookup records, I have to do a search in order to view any records. Is there a way we can make it all lookup records by default ? (like it does in standard UI)

I think there is a MRU (Most recently used) algorithm applied on the number of records to be displayed in the look up page. But the algorithm seems to be different from the one applied to salseforce sidebar.

 

What say Bulent?

This is possible and very easy to implement, here are the steps:

1. Go To Develop > Sites

3. On the Site Details Screen scroll below to "Site Standard Pages" section.
4. Click Edit button and add "Lookup Page" to Selected Pages
5. Click Save

Hi Renuka,
All you have to do is to add Search Pages and Lookup page to the site standard pages and it will show the lookup page on your site.
But lookup records will not be visible to the portal or guest user. For that you have to create custom lookup page.

Thanks,
Shubham
