Displaying results after a search as a plug-in

I'm trying to create a search page using Databridge. The search is working properly in terms of returning correct results. However, I want to not show any results until a search has been performed. The default setting is to have all records returned. I have also tried using just a search page as a plug-in, which does not show any results until a search has been performed, but when I do this the results are returned as their own page, not within the confines of the original page i.e. my site design.

Here's a link to the page in question http://loneworkertrainingnetwork.co.uk/contact-hub-search.php Any help is appreciate

on the results page, edit the Data Assist Search server behavior and set the Default Where to:
0 != 0


to use the results as a plugin, you will need to edit the action of the search form to go to the main page that the results are plugged into.

I tried that Jason and it resulted in a syntax error in the SQL statement. I altered it via the search server behavior as you suggested and this code was added in $WADbSearch1_DefaultWhere = "0 != 0";

ooops, that is PHP Syntax, sorry.

use this instead:
0 <> 0

I'm still getting a syntax error after the second change??

** UPDATE**
I fixed the syntax error by removing the quotes around the 0 <> 0 in the php code, I figured as it was a number comparison the quotes wouldn't be needed. However, the page is still giving me results before I've carried out a search? If you view the page again you'll see this.

the original search will be stored in a session, so you will need to close the browser completely to start a new browsing session for testing.

I closed the browser (Chrome) and reloaded the page, but it still brings up the full list of results initially?

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

the probelm was that the recordset being used had a WHERE clause already.

I corrected the problem by setting the default where to:

$WADbSearch1_DefaultWhere = " AND 0 <> 0";
