Tabular display (6 posts)

    Is there a way to set the display from search to generate tables? With a large library, having results returned in a single column of results can mean a large page to scroll through or a lot of paging.

    This could probably be handled with clever stylesheet code, much in the same way the WP backend dashboard is handled.

    Don't suppose you have some of that clever stylesheet code around??? :-)

    Perhaps for a future iteration, you could create a settings items for the search page (or maybe just an option on the inline parameters) that would allow you to choose the number of columns, like so many other WP plugins do?

    Thanks for this - I believe it will be helpful for our little woodworkers association, but would be even more useful if we could generate multiple columns and an upload/media library link function.

    Nope. I barely understand stylesheets myself. Misquoting Dr. "Bones" McCoy: "Damit Jim, I'm a programmer, not a web designer!".

    OK - well maybe I'll take a crack at that. Can you tell me what php or js file generates the output of search results?

    There is no js code involved. The short codes are implemented in the short_codes.php in the includes directory. The actual search code is in the database_code.php file.
