Search results page header

Postby WriterAndrew on Fri Jun 14, 2019 3:04 am

Hi,
In my HTML5 TopNav output, when you carry out a search, the search results page has a different header to the rest of the site. (It uses a different logo - most likely the very first one I used when "learning" Flare, and has a different height than the header on all other pages.)

Any suggestions where this is defined?

Thanks

Your best bet is to create a search results topic and use the Search Results Proxy so that you have more control over the look and feel of that page. There are some instructions here https://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare2019/Content/Flare/Proxies/Creating-Search-Results.htm

Hi, Chris,
Yes, I have a separate search results topic that uses the search results proxy.

My issue is that when I'm using the HTML5 output, all my pages are consistently using the header I set up in my HTML5 - Top Nav skin except for the search results page.

(Although it is similar, when I first set up this project, I was using a fairly low-res version of the corporate logo. I have since updated this to use a hi-res svg file, which is used throughout the project with this one exception - the search results page is still using the old png version of the logo - so the search results page has a "fuzzy, slightly smaller" version of the logo, which "jumps position" as the search page is displayed!)

I do not remember specifically setting up the header for the search results page, and I cannot find where this is being defined!

All suggestions gratefully received!

Is there an answer for this? I'm in a similar situation: I've created a child project, and am looking to use a different skin with the search results page. But despite having created a new search results skin and inserted its proxy into a new topic page, I don't see any change. I've even tried deleting the imported parent's results page.

I resolved this by opening the target file, going to the Advanced tab, scrolling far down and changing the Master page. As a new user, I'm not sure if this is the best practice -- if so, it was not at all intuitive and took me hours to figure out.
