I am using the Low Search plugin to allow visitors to my site to search for content, however I require that categories appear in the search results as well as entries. Is this possible?


Low Search will always return entries. The Results tag is built on the native channel:entries tag, so it can output anything it can, and then some. However, it will still always return unique channel entries.

If you want to display categories, you can, but only like you would using the channel:entries tag: using the {categories}{/categories} variable pair, which is always associated with an entry.

Outputting stand-alone categories as a single search result (as if you were using the channel:categories tag) is not possible.
