    Hello,
    I don’t understand how I can display results in another page.
    I try to set up the navbar search input to open the search page and display the results.
    But, it doesn’t seems to works.
    It’s a custom theme and the search form that I’m trying to use is called “Navbar”.
    Can you help me to do it? I tried a lot of things that I found on your documentation.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Make sure to set the magnifier and the return button events to redirect to the results page.
    Please note, that the plugin can not create custom results pages, it is completely controlled by the the theme you are using – that needs to be customized there.
    Once the plugin redirects to the results page, you can enable the results page override feature – so instead of the core wordpress search results, the one from this plugin are displayed instead.

    Hi Ernest,
    Well, can you please send me more informatin about the custom results pages please?
    It’s a custom theme, made by myself but I don’t know anything about the results page so a little bit of documentation is really welcome!

    Well I am not a theme developer, so I am not familiar with the all of the details, but as far as I know the search.php theme file should be handling the search results.
    I would probably start by taking a look at a sample theme, which has an implemented search.php file, and go from there. There should be a basic posts loop there for sure to handle the results, that I know. Unfortuantely I am no expert with theme development and inner workings.

    I don’t understand something: Why do your plugin require native search feature?
    I mean, it’s not the same form, so not the same way to display results, no?

    Also, the Wp documentation is not really dev friendly.
    I don’t find a way to display wordpress results on custom page.

    Is there another way to display results form a search input made with your plugin?

    Thanks

    The way wordpress works is the reason why the native search results handling is required for the results page. The results page handler is the core wordpress feature where the search results are handled, so the search plugins know where to initiate the search override functions.
    For a simpler solution, you can try using Elementor to add a posts archive widget to the results page, but coding it might be just as simple.

    The coding should not be any difficult either, all themes come with a results page handler. You can take a sample from the core wordpress themes, the search.php file usually contains the header, footer, the body part, and a simple posts loop:

    while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    
    	/**
    	 * Run the loop for the search to output the results.
    	 * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file
    	 * called content-search.php and that will be used instead.
    	 */
    	get_template_part( 'template-parts/content', 'search' );
    
    // End the loop.
    endwhile;
