I am new to expression engine and setup multiple sites using MSM. All the sites having simple search form to search across the channels. When i search with the master site the search working perfectly, But when i search through the sites other than master it redirects me to no result page.


    <input type="text" name="keywords" id="search" value="" class="form-control input-sm" placeholder="Search" required /> 

    <button type="submit" id="submit" name="submit" class="btn btn-default btn-sm">
        <i class="fa fa-search"></i>

  • Why do your inputs have ids, names, and classes? Do you have a lot of ill-conceived jQuery form plugins in play? Selector wise, you only need name, and class is ok to add too.

Try setting which site you want to search in, otherwise it will only search the current site. If it can't find those channels, you get no results.


MSM is nice. But when you want to pull data from one site into another, you need to specify where the data comes from.

  • Still redirecting to no_results page. According to your suggestion i had made the following changes to the search form {exp:search:simple_form channel="default_site:news|default_site:business|default_site:travel" result_page="search/results" no_result_page="search/no_results" search_in="everywhere"}
