"No results found for…" replacing the search form

    Hi,

    Recently I installed WPSOLR plugin for a project and I’m using the default [solr_search_shortcode] to search and display the results. Everything it’s ok until when I have no result, the plugin doesn’t display the form anymore, so I have to refresh the page or go back to the previews search.

    Debugging I’ve seen that:

    `
    fun_search_indexed_data()
    `
    returning this
    `
    echo “<span class=’infor’>” . sprintf(OptionLocalization::get_term($localization_options, ‘results_header_no_results_found’), WPSOLR_Service_Container::get_query()->get_wpsolr_query(”, true)) . “</span>”;
    `
    instead of a template.

    There is a way to maintain the search form when no results are returned from search?

    Thank you!

    Which version do you use?

    The shortcode is deprecated. I suggest that you use the other option “Use my own theme” in screen 2.1.

    Then, your theme controls 100% the way results are displayed, including empty results.

    If I’m switching to “Use my own theme” I can benefit of “Cross-domain” search? From what I’ve read in the documentation search in multiple domains works “Only the shortcode Ajax template”.

    thanks!

    You’re right. It is mandatory to use the Ajax shortcode with multi-domain search. The reason is that the_post() used by your theme will not work, as some posts come from other sites.

    Back to your original question then!

    The empty results message is taken from the localisations (screen 2.6), in fact the text “Message no results found”. You could use it to add your own text, eventually containing a link/button to the full search url /mysearch/?search=

    Thanks for your answer!

    I would like to ask you if this is going to change in the next versions? We’ll be able to have a custom (search form / display results) working with cross-domain search?

    Here is a pre-release with a fix: the search form remains visible with empty results. Let me know if it is ok.
