How can I display search results differently?
Hi there – I’ve googled; searched plugins and read a fair bit here. My question is about changing the way search results for BBPress display.
I’m using the Avada theme 3.8.3
There are a couple of issues – only in the visual appearance of BBPress search results, and I need some tips as to how to fix it!
- Search results are not well distinguished (compared to our previous ExpressionEngine forum, where admittedly, the forum post content was not shown, but it easy to see the list of topics and results). A mix of “Topics” and “Replies To” are shown
- Search results may include several posts from the one topic, but these are not collated (they are displayed in order of recency, and usually appear in between the other search results)
- Search results with long forum posts take up too much page realestate
Please see these two screenshots that illustrate the difference:
Clearly the search results are very thorough, and I’m looking for help to represent them more efficiently.
- What template would I look for?
- How can I change the loop so that the results are more like our old forum?
Thanks in advance – feel free to point me to any plugins I may have missed.
