Also, I don't want any results to show up until the user has searched for something. How do I hide the loop until the search has been made?

If you're showing the search form and the search results on the same page, this will require some workaround.

Can you please share a link to the page where this view can be seen?

I'll be in a better position to guide you with the steps accordingly.



Hi again Waqar,

Here is the link to the site again. Right now the search bar and results are in the same area. Is it possible to move the results to a separate page or another area?
hidden link

Thank you for confirming the link.

I've noticed that you've managed to show the search form from a view on the homepage and the results on a separate page ( hidden link ), following the steps from the other ticket.

You're welcome to mark this ticket as resolved and I'll follow up on the column formatting issue, on the original ticket.
