  • Hi There. In Evo 1.0.8 using ajax search snippet and have followed the instructions on: http://modx.com/extras/package/ajaxsearch. I have created a landing page (resource) with the snippet call: [!AjaxSearch? &showInputForm=`0`&showResults=`1`&ajaxSearch=`1`!]

    I also created a chunk for the Search and have the following there:

    <div class="header_soc_search clearfix">
    <div class="header_search">
    [!AjaxSearch? &showResults=`1` &landingPage=`20` &showMoreResults=`1` &moreResultsPage=`20`!]
    </div>

    When I do a test search it generates results, but it shows up on the same page instead of going to a separate page. For example, if I'm on the home page and do a search, the results show there and push everything down below the header. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am a newbie so I'm still trying to figure out how all this works. Can someone please help me?

    This question has been answered by multiple community members. See the first response.

      To show the results in a separate page you need to turn the AJAX part of AjaxSearch off for the search form:
      [!AjaxSearch? &ajaxSearch=`0` &landingPage=`20`!] 


      Then on your landing page you need another AjaxSearch snippet call to process the search form's values and (optionally) not show the form again:
      [!AjaxSearch? &ajaxSearch=`0` &showInputForm=`0`!]

        Thank you Sottwell! This worked great for getting the results onto a second page. Unfortunately, now there are two sets of results showing up - one above and below the nav menu (see screenshot). Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

          You need to specify &showResults=`0` in the upper right snippet. I presume this is in your template.

          This may prove useful, although I'm not sure if there are more recent versions available now.

            Thank you Sottwell. I will try this.
            • That worked! I'm very thankful for your help Sottwell smiley. Any chance you could help me on a few other issues I am having?
