Support » Plugin: Relevanssi - A Better Search » Not working, I need help please!

  • Resolved lilymariec



    The theme I’m using right now is a free theme and didn’t even have a search feature. So I created a search box, but I couldn’t get the search results page to work properly… so that’s why I’m using this plugin. I thought it would create a new search results page so I don’t have to deal with that (I’m not a php expert).

    But it’s not working at all. What am I doing wrong? Even in the widgets area it doesn’t show up at all. But I did go to settings to set it all up.

  • This plugin doesn’t create a search results page for you, it just obtains better search results, and puts them on an existing search results page.

    It might be your theme that’s busted. Try using the default WordPress theme, then activating this plugin. I bet it’ll work then. If it does, then it’s your theme’s fault, not Relevanssi’s.

    Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I kinda figured that out. I had to create a search results page by using another theme’s search.php as an example. It wasn’t easy! But I think it’s working now.

    I do have a question. Where can I change the css? There’s not enough padding between the individual search results … but other than that, I think it’s all good now!

    Modify the theme CSS file, it’s usually called style.css. Then again, if your theme didn’t have a search results template, then it might be non-standard in other ways. But your theme should have a CSS file.
