I have been trying to get the search function to do what I want it to do. The site that I’m working on is a stock photography site, without blog posts. I want the search to return results based on keywords. I have accomplished that. What I’m having issues with is I would like the gallery results returned to the page (which I have also accomplished) but when there are no results, a message about no results and the search box. Currently, it returns the message and search box, whether or not there are results.
I have to say that what I know about PHP will fit on the head of a pin but here is the code so far (a mixture of codes found through forums).
<h1 class="page-title"><?php printf( __( 'Search Results for: %s', 'twentyten' ), '<span>' . get_search_query() . '</span>' ); ?></h1> <?php if (ngg_images_results() ) : ?> <?php echo ngg_images_results();?> <?php else : ?> <div id="post-0" class="post no-results not-found"> <h2 class="entry-title"><?php _e( 'Nothing Found', 'twentyten' ); ?></h2> <div class="entry-content"> <p><?php _e( 'Sorry, but nothing matched your search criteria. Please try again with some different keywords.', 'twentyten' ); ?></p> <?php get_search_form(); ?> </div><!-- .entry-content --> </div><!-- #post-0 --> <?php endif; ?>
