[resolved] Search going to Blank listing page (2 posts)

    Yesterday I installed your plugin on your Highland theme in the new WordPress 3.5.2

    I am using your demonstration data. I created a "Listing" page with the 2 short codes on it like so:
    begin Quote:
    [searchform]

    [listings]
    end Quote

    I got a search function on the home page. However when I search, it take me to the new "Listing" page; and I see the page just like above with no actual listing results as expected.

    ALSO: mobile sites are not optimized for mobile. I tested with both Mobilizer and Opera. I did not check Keynote yet.

    I am wondering if this plugin will work with JumpMobi (JumpMobi.com). JumpMobi utilizes a theme switcher to offer up a mobile site. In order to use JumpMobi, I need a search function that uses a plugin based short code that is not dependent on theme. I need to place the search form into a single page. All other features I should be able to work around.

    I appreciate the help.

    Regards.

    Hi lydwolf1,

    It looks like you might have entered the short code incorrectly. If you want the search form and results on the same page, you need to enter the following:

    [search_form]

    [search_listings]

    You can put just the search form on a page using the [search_form] short code on a separate page from the results. When the user clicks the search button they will by default be redirected to a page with a page slug of 'listings'. If you also create a page with 'listings' as its slug and place the shortcodes [search_form] and [search_listings] in it, users can select search criteria on the first page, click the search button and be redirected to the second page with the results filtered according to their selection. You can if you wish, hide the search form on the second page for small screens (such as mobile devices) by using media queries, for example.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.
