    When I enter any word into search widget it redirects to site home page and not search result page. The main site is http://www.knowthyselfwellness.com and blog is http://www.knowthyselfwellness.com/wordpress. I am just getting this up and running but even if I put in a word from the first blog entry like "blog" it returns me to site home page.
    Thank you !

    By default, the search results are sent to the homepage... you can customize the search results by creating a search.php page, but this is NOT the search results page, it's simply a way to customize how the search results work. If you want a special page to show the search results, you'll need to create a template. These directions will show you exactly what you need. It covers all options.
