On my wordpress theme i am using a static page for my home page. The issue is if someone submits an empty search wordpress sends them to the index.php. I remember that in one of the videos Chris showed a technique to deal with this but i can’t remember which video it was. Does anyone know how to deal with this or which video it was?

@JoshWhite The search loop is fine and on a standard WP site that don’t use a static home page don’t have an issue with when someone submits an empty search but as soon as you use a static home page the issue arises. This is because the WP standard for handerling an empty search is to send the user to index.php. This is the issue i am battling with and need to fix.March 10, 2012 at 4:46 pm #98718

Sorry, do you have the search.php file? Can’t tell if you’ve answered Josh’s question.April 10, 2012 at 2:03 pm #100965
@TheDoc Yeah i have a search.php file but the default for wordpress when someone submit’s the search box with nothing in it is to send them to index.php but it wont load the page that you have set as your home page which in my case is a template under home.phpApril 10, 2012 at 2:08 pm #100966TheDocModerator
Aaahhhh. There are a few solutions for this. Just search “empty search wordpress” in Google and you’ll find a plethora of solutions.April 10, 2012 at 2:11 pm #100967April 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm #100968chrisburtonParticipant
Yeah, I remember having this issue. I might have posted it here in the forums.
Edit: It was unrelated to an empty search.
