    How do you disable the category selection in the search bar.

    When I search for a product without selecting the category then the search results page looks great.

    When I search for a product eg Mother’s Day and select a category such as single christian cards the page that is returned includes the home page contents before the search results and does not look good.

    As a quick solution I’m happy to just turn off the category selection.

    thanks

  • I’ve done it with css as a short term measure but is there a better way?

    whoops no, that does not work as when I go into a category the category is automatically picked up in the search bar so display none does not help.

    OK, don’t worry its fixed.

    For anyone having similar issues here’s the solution.

    set up child theme for the woocommerce > product argive file and change the:

    do_action(‘woocommerce_archive_description’);

    to:

    if (! is_search()) :
    do_action(‘woocommerce_archive_description’);
    endif;

    and that will bring back the plain results page.

    I’m guessing this is an issue only if you use category descriptions.
