Support » Theme: GeneratePress » Navigation Search Results Descriptions

  • I have the navigation search enabled in my menu. When I search something and the results come up, the descriptions of each page result just lists everything on the page. Is there a place to edit the descriptions of the results?

    I don’t know how to send a picture. According to Google, I am talking about a “snippet”. “A snippet is the description for the page that appears underneath the title. Google can obtain the snippet from either the page’s meta description tag or contextual information on the page.” That is what I am talking about.

    When I search for something using the search button, the “snippet” just shows all the page info instead of a normal description of the page. So I was wondering how you can edit the “snippet” of the search results.

    You can use a cloud service like Postimages or Imgur and paste the image to your link here.

    I’m still not sure what you mean but perhaps you’re pertaining to the post excerpts?

    Yes, they are kind of like post excerpts. I use pages, though. As you can see in the picture, the search results just list everything. I am just wondering if there is a way to edit what those excepts say or if I can get rid of them altogether.

    You can completely remove the excerpt from display on search results page by adding this CSS:

    body.search .entry-summary {
        display: none;
    }
