I have installed OC 2.0.1.1 and I created a new template based on the default theme.

One of the things I changed was the location of the top search field. In the custom theme however this search field is not working properly:
- pressing Enter doesn't do anything
- clicking on search button gets me to search page but with no results and no search terms filled
- using the search form in .../index.php?route=product/search page does work as it is supposed to
- bugzilla doesn't report any problems with the page

The custom template still links to catalog/view/javascript/common.js but of course links to modified tpl and css files.
In header.tpl I just moved

Code: Select all

<?php echo $search; ?>
to a different place. File search.tpl is an exact copy of the one in default folder.

How did I mess it up? Any ideas?
On the default template everything works fine.

I will appreciate any suggestions, anything I should look into?

Could you provide your site url, so I can take a look at the problem closer?

Sure, it is http://www.unitedbargains.co.uk/


EDIT:
Just in case someone is checking it out I am doing the template from the scratch so if I find the issue I will let you know...

EDIT2:
So far I noticed that if you take <?php echo $search; ?> out of <header> it stops working...

EDIT3:
So I no longer have a problem as I kept search in <header> section. However I still don't understand why it cannot be moved elsewhere.

Is the problem solved? I see that the search box works properly.

Yes, the problem is solved although the question remains: why can't we put search bar in other places in template structure?

Anyway thanks and I hope in the future this will be more flexible.

For future - I had the same problem, but I found the solution, go to common.js, find the:

Code: Select all

var value = $('header input[name=\'search\']').val();
and replace with

Code: Select all

var value = $('body input[name=\'search\']').val();
Now, all works fine :)

I have the exact same issues, except my search has never left the header.
The problem I have is that the top search works, but on the search page it comes back empty nothing found.

Any chance you are willing to share the enter and search page solution?

Thanks

second this, search using header search bar does not search term but goes to empty results page.
