Hour 13. Providing Public Search > Understanding Search Templates

Understanding Search Templates

Okay, so you have your forms set up the way you want them and everything's working just fine. But what in the world are you going to do with those plain-looking standard search results pages? You may have gone looking for the templates for these pages in the Templates section of your administrative interface as you learned in Hour 10, “Using Movable Type Templates,” and Hour 11, “Customizing Movable Type Templates,” but you won't find them there.

Remember that, aside from the ability to set the IncludeBlogs and ExcludeBlogs fields, searches are not bound to any particular weblog published by your install. Because of this, it wouldn't really make sense for the search templates to appear in the interface for a specific weblog. Instead, they are stored as text files in a special directory of their own. This directory is called search_templates and is just inside the directory where you installed Movable Type.
