Using the search_results tags to display results I added a parameter like when displaying channel entries, status="Open" to specifically show only "Open" entries, but it still shows Closed entries.

Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.

  • Perhaps it would be useful to include a bigger snippet of your template-code.

I would try making the Open uncapped to status="open".

Maybe not the fix, but I have had weird issues around that.

You need to ensure you are setting the status on the search form tag itself, rather than on the results tag.


You don't need to set status="Open" anywhere in your templates. ExpressionEngine already assumes you want "open" entries and will return "open" entries by default.
