[Resolved] My search function does not work anymore.

  • I have to have a “splash” page before entering the wordpress site, which is located in the root. I did this by adding:

    DirectoryIndex gohere.htm
    to the .htaccess file. (so i can save index.php for the site and still have it in the root)

    On the splash page, depending on where you click you will either go to “/2/index.htm” or “index.php” (which is in the root)

    Ever since i did this my search box does not work anymore. it just redirects to the gohere.htm.

    Do i have to add something else in the .htaccess to make my search work?

    thanks, tropicalfoods.com

  • Try editing the form action for the search to post to:
    /index.php

    instead of:
    http://www.tropicalfoods.com/

    I think your talking about line 124 on the includes/general-template.php which says

    $form = ‘<form role=”search” method=”get” id=”searchform” action=”‘ . get_option(‘home’) . ‘/” >

    what exactly do i change? the ‘home’ ???

    are you using the search widget, OR is the search built into the theme?

    do you have a searchform.php in your theme? or some such file…

    I’ve been working off wordpress default theme that comes with the unzip, and changing the look. but all the functionality is the original theme.

    in my header i have <div id=”searchbox”><?php get_search_form(); ?>

    i do have the search.php that came with it in there, as well as a searchform.php that i created.

    thanks.

    Anything? I feel like i’m close to a solution here.
    thanks.

    Solution:

    line 124 -> wp-includes/general-template.php

    change

    $form = ‘<form role=”search” method=”get” id=”searchform” action=”‘ . get_option(‘home’) . ‘/” >

    to

    $form = ‘<form role=”search” method=”get” id=”searchform” action=”/index.php” >

    nevermind…
