I'm having an issue with a simple search returning no results for a channel. All the fields in the channel are plain text fields, and all are set to be searchable. All entries in the channel have a status of "open".

I can display the contents of this channel's entries just fine, but search is consistently sending me to the no results page. My search form code is:

{exp:search:simple_form form_id="peopleSearchForm" no_result_page="search/no-results" result_page="search/index" channel="employee_list" search_in="everywhere" status="open" where="all" show_expired="yes" show_future_entries="yes"}
<input type="text" name="keywords" id="keywords">
<input type="image" src="/images/interface/btn_search.png" name="people-submit" id="people-submit" alt="Search People">

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I'm completely stumped.

  • Your results page has the search results tags right? Jul 23 '14 at 20:10
  • Also what happens when you replace that input image type with a regular submit button? Jul 23 '14 at 20:12
  • Hi -- Yes, I tried with a regular submit button, same outcome. My results page contains the following to display results: {exp:search:search_results} <div class="results"> <strong>{first_name} {last_name}</strong><br /> {job_title}<br /> {business_unit}<br /> {job_location}<br /> {if work_phone}Tel {work_phone}<br />{/if} {if cell_phone}{cell_phone}<br />{/if} <a href="mailto:{work_email}">{work_email}</a> </div> {/exp:search:search_results}
