About this task

In the Developer Portal, the search results are displayed as a view, and so you can control the presentation of this search content. For more information about views, see Using the Views module in the Developer Portal.


To configure the search results view, complete the following steps.

  1. Log in to the Developer Portal as an administrator.
  2. If the administrator dashboard is not displayed, click Manage to display it.
  3. On the administrator dashboard, click Structure > Views.
    The list of views is displayed.
  4. Find the Search content view in the list, and click Edit.
  5. Edit the Search content view settings as required.

    Here you can modify the display of the view or add new displays. For example, you can configure the formatting of the view, the filtering and sorting criteria, add header or footer details, as well as more advanced options around contextual filters, relationships, and behavior when there are no results to display. There is also a preview area so you can check the view before publishing.

  6. Click Save to make your changes permanent.


You updated the view of the search results in the Developer Portal.

You can configure the search index and server that are used to generate the search results. For more information, see Configuring search indexes and servers.
