Change format of search result page - DeFolio theme (8 posts)

    I was wondering if there was an easy way to change the display of the search results on this website: http://www.vadatech.co.uk.

    Currently the search results display in the same format as the blog would, which doesn't look great as it's split into four columns. We're using the blog in the News & Events section so don't want to change the way this renders - just the search results.

    Ideally it would be good to just have it listed in a standard page format, as a long list, rather than split into columns.

    Can anyone help? Is there a quick fix to this or will it require a WP developer to make some major changes? Thanks.

    Hi SMEketing,

    What is the name of the theme and which plugins you are using?

    You can modify seach.php and put the loop from the standard page into teh loop for search.php

    Hi, it's the DeFolio theme: http://themeshift.com/theme/defolio/

    I'm only using the standard search that comes with it, although I would like to add a better search plugin, but thought I'd get the results page sorted before spending time on that.

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developer/vendor. We do not support commercial themes here.

    Sorry, what do you mean by the loop? I'm comfortable-ish editing the php files, but I've not really done too much more than basic theme edits.

    Okay no worries, will contact the theme owners. Thanks for your help anyway.
