Hi there, i have been searching for help here in gl site, but i could not find it.

1.) So, i want to customize search results - so that only articles would be shown/found in results page. I don't wont a comments or staticpages to appear in search results, only articles. I have changed searchform allready to fit our suits. So, all i want is to get rid of comments and staticpages results, to exclude them from search results.

2.) And just one more thing : i want to show o1ly title of articles, without the date of publishing, author and hits count.

3.) And just one more thing : i want to display first paragraph (like intro with link read more in topics) of article under the title of it.

And know what? I need some concrete help, specialy for first problem, something like step by step, easy. Thank you, geeks, read ya, lya! Its a deal - shaking hands

I'm afraid what you want would require code changes. So the first step would be to learn some PHP ...

bye, Dirk

Depending on what theme you use you can change this in your search form:
Text Formatted Code

<input type="hidden" name="type" value="all">

 

to this:
Text Formatted Code

<input type="hidden" name="type" value="stories">

 

That will work for the search block on the home page if you also want to limit the advanced search you will have to edit the searchform.thtml file and remove the items you don't want from the select name="type" area.

You need to edit your story.thtml, featuredstorytext.thtml, and archivestorytext.thtml, just removing the
Text Formatted Code

{story_date},{lang_contributed_by},{start_contributedby_anchortag},{contributedby_user},{end_contributedby_anchortag},{lang_views},{story_hits}

 

variables should work.

once again edit those three story template files.
