What can I edit to change the search/tags/categories results page?

Recommended Posts


I'd like to CSS format my own search results page, something like a grid view.  I've seen some sites around the web that mention search.php and such but I'm not sure how it all works in pagelines.  What file(s) should/Could I look into to make this happen?


When I search'd the forum for search results it only showed one thread which seemed strange, I feel like someone has definitely done this before?



any help would be appreciated

Not sure what you mean by CSS format your search results ?


If you want your search results to be in a grid format you will likely need to use either the Legacy options and use Magazine mode or use a plugin. DMS isn't setup like a normal WordPress theme and you can not edit a file to change the layout of your search results. To do what you want you will likely need to do what I mentioned above or create your own section and add that section when viewing your search results template.

Just search your own site and edit what you see there. When you search your site, you're viewing the results from the search.php search form. But in PageLines, it's another template to customize display of. So you could add a text box and that static text would appear on all search result pages.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
