Hi there
i'm creating search function to my simple site and.. no good.

i did everything like the tutorial and it seems that silvestripe ignores it.
First, search form displays

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

but i think it should be action="/results", because when i click id redirect me to that page (or similar like /something/SearchForm) and page just refresh, no search content it's displayed.
I've created results() function in Page_Controller, created - everything what's on the tutorial, and still nothing.
I've just followed tutorial strictly, maybe i need to tweak it a little, but for now i'm stuck.

Someone can help me with this?

Nope, the form action goes to your controller which then redirects you after it's finished processing to the results uri. You shouldn't need to include any PHP code as that is all built in as of 2.4/3.0 though make sure your theme has a template that outputs the results.

Do you have a Page_results template, as per the tutorial?
