Hey there
I want to create search function on url mysite.com/search - no search form on top of the page, just single subpage with search form and results
i've used the tutorial but it's not working (completly, got 404) - how to force the controller to display content from "search" method in the Page class insteed of 404 ? ?

it's just copypasted code from tutorial here: http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/tutorials/4-site-search for "2.4 and newer"
with a differences:
- no $SearchForm on top of the page, just link to /search
- renamed function results to function search and Page_results to Page_search

i'll post exact code when i'll be back on my work computer, but like ive said its just copypasted

what possibly i've missed ?

<?php
class SearchPage extends SiteTree {

}

class SearchPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
   
   public function index() {
      return $this->render();
   }
   
   public function results($data, $form) {
      $data = array(
         'Results' => $form->getResults(),
         'Query' => $form->getSearchQuery(),
         'Title' => 'Search Results'
      );
      $this->Query = $form->getSearchQuery();
      return $this->customise($data)->renderWith(array('SearchPage_results','SearchPage'));
   }
}
?>


this is what i've done so far and still completly not working.
on index i just display template with $SearchForm added

code aboce generates form like:

<form id="SearchForm_SearchForm" action="/SearchPage_Controller/SearchForm" method="get" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">


how to change $searchForm ? need to change action value, and the submit button?

im using 2.4.5.
this line is added, rebuilded etc. i've followed the tutorial, but it didn't helped as only the (poorly working) search form is displayed, nothing else

Page_results.ss under yourtheme/layout/ must contains something like that:

<div class="typography">
   <% if Results %>
    <ul id="SearchResults">
    <% control Results %>
    <li>
    <% if MenuTitle %>
    <h3><a class="searchResultHeader" href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></h3>
    <% else %>
    <h3><a class="searchResultHeader" href="$Link">$Title</a></h3>
    <% end_if %>
          <% if Content %>
       $Content.FirstParagraph(html)
          <% end_if %>
    <a class="readMoreLink" href="$Link" title="Read more about &quot;{$Title}&quot;">Read more about &quot;{$Title}&quot;...</a>
    </li>
    <% end_control %>
    </ul>
    <% else %>
    <p>
            <%-- Example of a translatable string (see http://doc.silverstripe.org/i18n) --%>
            <% _t("Page_results.ss.NORESULTS", "Sorry, your search query did not return any results.") %>
            <%-- By the way, template comments marked like this will be excluded from the HTML output --%>
         </p>
    <% end_if %>

    <% if Results.MoreThanOnePage %>
    <div id="PageNumbers">
    <% if Results.NotLastPage %>
    <a class="next" href="$Results.NextLink" title="View the next page">Next</a>
    <% end_if %>
    <% if Results.NotFirstPage %>
    <a class="prev" href="$Results.PrevLink" title="View the previous page">Prev</a>
    <% end_if %>
    <span>
    <% control Results.SummaryPagination(5) %>
    <% if CurrentBool %>
    $PageNum
    <% else %>
    <a href="$Link" title="View page number $PageNum">$PageNum</a>
    <% end_if %>
    <% end_control %>
    </span>

    </div>
    <% end_if %>
</div>

i've copied Page_results.ss from tutorial, but it's dont even accessed - i'm redirected to /SearchPage_Controller/SearchForm.
from the tutorial only input and submit button are working somehow (by working i meant that they are displayed, nothing more)
