Hi Craig, I got my search no results page all sorted thanks. My original question relates to other pages, well relating to my category listing pages, since the category listing page shows results based on the URL and let's say for what ever reason, the last few letters were cut off from the URL (maybe an incorrect copy/paste of a URL) so since the URL won't return any results but the page will still display but with blank areas.

Same idea for product pages. Let's say for argument sake that product ID 45 doesn't exist. But if you were to have a URL that ends with ProductID=45 then it will still display the page, but the dynamic elements wouldn't be missing.

Does this make sense?
