Support » Fixing WordPress » search post / pages results all in same category

  • When I do a search on (sorry, it’s in Danish!) the search results show up correctly (E.g. Both post and pages are shown.

    However, results present static paces as belonging to category ‘Sidste nyt’. It’s the only category presently in use for my blog posts. However, I don’t want static pages to be shown belonging to that category. They are in no category, really. I ticked those pages belonging to Parent: ‘Main page (no parent).’

    So, why do pages turn up under a category they don’t belong to?

  • Quick fix. Edit search.php and look for a reference to <?php the_category();?>. Amend this to:

    <?php if($post->post_type == 'post') :?>
    <?php the_category();?>
    <?php endif;?>

    This will stop any category information being displayed unless the result refers to a WP Post.

    Thank you for the answer. That did it! Topic resolved.

    Anyway, finally I decided not to have category information shown at all on the search page.
