    I am using the Backcountry theme. I used the widget search bar to create it on each page but I have a question. Is there a way to create a list rather than have full articles appearing with the keywords that were typed in? For example, if I type in Calgary Flood, a couple of articles come up but rather than appear as a list, the whole articles are appearing one after another. Is there a way to have a search bar bring up a list when searching for a topic instead of full articles? Thanks in advance. grvblogger



    You can add this to functions.php to have the search results show excerpts instead of full posts:

    add_action( 'genesis_before_loop', 'sk_excerpts_search_page' );
    function sk_excerpts_search_page() {
      if ( is_search() ) {
    		add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_content_archive', 'sk_show_excerpts' );
    function sk_show_excerpts() {
    	return 'excerpts';

    I know that isn’t exactly what you asked about, but a list of excerpts is way better than a bunch of full posts. Hope that helps!
