hiding search

Hey Ray

How would I display this

<div class="coffee-span-12 resultsRows">
<span><strong>You searched:</strong>
<?php if($_POST["SearchContent"] != ""){ ?>
<?php echo $_POST["SearchContent"]; ?>
<?php } else { ?>
search was empty
<?php } ?>
</span>
</div>



only if the search button has been clicked on the attached page?

thanks

Jamie

You might try:

php:
<?php

if (isset($_SESSION["WASearch_Recordset2"])) {
?>
// show this when a filter is applied
<?php
}
?>



or

php:
<?php

if (isset($_POST["WADbSearch1"]) || isset($_POST["WADbSearch1_x"])) {
?>
// show this when a filter is applied
<?php
}
?>



The problem with the second one is that it wouldn't show after navigating to the next page of results.

Just put the code on the page manually wrapping your html that you want showing conditionally.

sorry, understand that bit - just not sure where the WASearch_Recordset2 session comes from?

That session variable is automatically set by the search server behavior whenever a search is performed. That is how the search is maintained from page to page when navigating through the recordset.

Is there a URL where I can take a look?

sure, am in the final stages of the CMS that youve helped me with a coupe of times.

If you login with the usual and head to 'Content' and then 'Blog' - its the blog_results.php page

Your recordset is named: WADAblog

You had to replace that bit in the code chunk, so it should have been:

php:
if (isset($_SESSION["WASearch_WADAblog"])) {
