    Hi,
    Is it possible to easily override the default template of the search results ?
    I would like to edit the wpsolr-templates/twig/ files, but not directly in plugin folder. For example I want to remove the meta informations block in search/result.twig file.
    Is there a way to do this ?

    Thanks for your help

    Best regards

    I’d like to emphasis that the WPSOLR search template is deprecated and not supported. Instead, your theme’s search template is recommended (you can select it in screen 2.1).

    On the other hand, the suggestions’ twig templates are supported. You can find a full example in /wpsolr-examples.

    Hi,
    The search was displayed via the shortcode [solr_search_shortcode]. Can I still use it ? Or is it deprecated too ?
    If it’s still ok, there is no way to easily customize the html of the results render ?
    If not, I will use the default search of WP.

    Thanks

    Indeed, the shortcode [solr_search_shortcode] is using WPSOLR’s search twig templates, and is deprecated.

    The idea instead is to use WPSOLR’s search backend while enjoying 100% of your theme’s search features.

    WPSOLR provided the shortcode a long time ago, for a simple blog post search.
    But now, there is simply no need of replacing advanced search templates like Flatsome/WooCommerce.

    If you choose “Use my theme’s search template” in screen 2.1, you will need no more the shortcode: all your theme’s archive templates will be used as usual to display results coming from WPSOLR’s backend (Elasticsearch, Solr, or Algolia, and soon Weaviate AI semantic search).

    Ok, thanks for your clarifications !
    Last question : is it working with Elementor ? I created a search results template with Elementor, inserted the “Post Archive” widget but the results displayed are not the same as when I don’t use Elementor Template. With Elementor template it displays CPT that I haven’t added to WPSOLR index. Is there a specific configuration for Elementor ?

    Thanks

    With Elementor template it displays CPT that I haven’t added to WPSOLR index

    It works with Elementor archive templates, not with single page Elementor templates.
    More generally, WPSOLR can replace archive queries.

    You can find a 100K products WooCommerce demo with Elementor “Hello” theme: https://www.wpsolr.com/wpsolr-demos/

    Yes, I added a template of type “Search results”, it’s not a single page Elementor template.
    But when I search a item, it displays the results like if WPSOLR was not activated ( = the results of default WP search).
    For example in WPSOLR index posts of type “posts”, “pages”, “cpt-1” are selected in screen 2.2 as data to index. But on front the search results displays posts of type “cpt-2”, a post type that I haven’t added to the WPSOLR index.
    And it’s the case only when I activate the search result template from Elementor. If I use the search.php template from my theme, the search only displays posts from “posts”, “pages” and “cpt-1”, so only the post types I have indexed with WPSOLR. Posts from “cpt-2” are not displayed. It’s the expected behaviour.
    I don’t know how to fix this so that it works with the search results template of Elementor…

    Thanks

    Can you see the WPSOLR facets widget on your search template (inserted in an Elementor sidebar widget for instance)?

    If not, please check your WP debug logs for errors.

    Yes, I see it. I have “WPSOLR facets” widget and “WPSOLR sort list” widget.
    But I don’t use them.

    Can you check your console javascript errors, and eventually your wp-content/debug.log errors?

    As WPSOLR only replaces archives, you must use the Elementor “Archive posts” widget, not the “Posts” widget.

    I have no errors, neither in the console nor in debug.log.
    And yes I used the “Archive posts” widget.

    I noticed that the “No. of results per page” parameter of WPSOLR is working fine, even with Elementor template. If I update the value in admin, the number of posts on front is correct. It’s only the displayed post types that is not correct. It displays types that I haven’t added to WPSOLR index.

    Can you empty your index, and reindex everything?

    Unfortunately it didn’t change anything… I still have post types that I don’t want in the search with Elementor.

    If no solution, I’ll use the theme template and not the Elementor template…
