Boilerplate
[resolved] Search not working after customizing Boilerplate (5 posts)

    This is bizarre to me, but I have created a child theme of Boilerplate and when activated, the search functionality doesn't work, just returns all posts regardless of the search term entered.

    I didn't change anything having to do with the search that I can think of. If I activate the Boilerplate theme, it works, if I activate my child theme based on Boilerplate, it behaves as described above.

    Tried deactivating all plugins and same result. It's driving me nuts... any ideas?

    What all files does your child theme consist of?

    Parent/Child themes work in a way that any child theme files replace the parent theme files, so it could be an issue with something in the child overwriting something from the BP parent...

    Not sure if this is very helpful, but more info about the child theme might help...

    @SpaciousMind: Is this still an issue or can this be marked as Resolved?

    Sorry Aaron, it was a low priority project/site that I kinda got pulled away from and haven't had much of a chance to return to. I'll try to delve back into it soon.
