    Hello everyone, hope you can help me out,

    I have my website built with storefront. I am working on the blog page, I have added a search bar dedicated to the blog(is there any plugin I could use for woocommerce products + blog posts?), and when I search for a subject on the blog, the results are shown like this: http://bit.ly/2DCz5Vh

    The results shown are the full page. What I want is a more compact search result.
    It this easy to do? Could anyone help me?
    Thank you in advance,
    Daniel

  • Hi Daniel,

    The results shown are the full page. What I want is a more compact search result.

    Could you explain a bit more on how you’d like the search results to show? Do you want to change the layout of how the search results are displayed? Or you want to remove the content from the results?

    Let us know so we can help accordingly!

    @thup90 I would like to turn the search results page, the same as the blog page.
    The results should be shown exactly like the blog page presents them. Is this easy to do?

    Hi there,

    Is http://smartagriculture.green/organic-garden/ your blog page? If so, it looks like you’ve created the layout using a plugin. This layout is not something Storefront can do out of the box. You’ll need a plugin or customization for this.

    My suggestion is to check the plugin that you’re using if it has an option for the search page. Otherwise, another plugin, such as this one https://wordpress.org/plugins/content-views-query-and-display-post-page/ might help you with this.

    @thup90 you are right. I will try and apply what you just told me. I had a look at that plugin page and I think it will work.
    By the way, as you seem to understand way more than me, can you advise me any search bar that works both with woocommerce products and blog posts? An all in one search bar kinda thing. I ask this because it is related to my search results page.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    @thup90 It works great on my blog page (/organic-garden). But the issue I am having is with the search results page, how can I make it look the same as /organic-garden, just showing the results? the page is search.php.

    Hi there,

    I’m afraid this is a third party plugin that we’re not familiar with, it’s best if you post your question in their forums: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/content-views-query-and-display-post-page/

    As for your question on a search bar, you can use the Search widget which works for both products and posts: https://d.pr/i/gVqlSH

    @thup90 Thank you for your help! Looking into replacing my search bar then.
