search function not working -- tried everything

Permalink
I configured setup index at the dashboard as advised in one of the posts here but it did not work.

Search was working during the first install which I had to totally remove because of database problem. At that time I did not even do anything but the search worked.

Can you tell us what exactly is not working?

Agreed. We need to know what isn't working and what steps your taking to see the problem. Are you trying to search and no results show up? Any errors anywhere? Do you have a link we can test?

It looks like you don't have a search results page, and the search block is set to post results to:

http://www.aseanexhibition.com/index.php/search/search-results/...

Create a new page under your Search page called Search Results, then add the search block to the content area of this new page.

That should get your search working again.

Thanks Lucas -- it worked. Thanks jelthure for your interest in helping me out and generating attention to my post.

Has anyone come across where when you put the search word in and click on the search it takes the user to a login page?????

If I'm already logged in it goes to the search results page and works fine.

Really need help NOW since we just launched the site on Friday and just now someone noticed the problem.

To view the code you can see it at

Search is at the top.

Thanks

You need to look at your code and how you implement it.

Yours looks like this:
<form action="http://www.chicagowilderness.org/index.php/search/search-results/" method="get" class="ccm-search-block-form">
<h3> </h3>
<input name="search_paths[]" type="hidden" value="" />
<input name="query" type="text" value="" class="ccm-search-block-text" />
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="Search" class="ccm-search-block-submit" />
</form>


Mine looks like this:
<form action="/index.php/search-results/" method="get" class="ccm-search-block-form">
<h3>Site Search</h3>
<input name="search_paths[]" type="hidden" value="" />
<input name="query" type="search" value="" title="suggest" placeholder="Search"/>
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="Find Now!" class="ccm-search-block-submit" />
</form>


You should try turning on pretty URL's.


Hope that helps
