I recently implemented the Foodie Pro theme on Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary website. It is a lovely minimalist theme, designed with food bloggers in mind, and has quite a few options for the display of your content.
In particular we like the Foodie Pro grid you can use on your category archive pages such as this archive for all Elizabeth’s cake recipes. You can choose what how many columns and what content you want displayed in the Appearance -> Customize -> Content Archives.
However Elizabeth soon contacted me to say that the search results page didn’t look so good. It was not using the grid layout but the layout specified in the settings in the Genesis -> Theme Settings -> Content Archives.
Fortunately to get the search results pages to use the grid layout took two minor edits to the theme files.
As always please ensure you have a back up of your files before you edit them! And remember that if you update your theme in the future these changes will be lost.
First up in the theme folder, find the helper-functions.php file, it is in the includes folder, then change the foodie_pro_is_blog function to:
Next up we want to edit the style.css so that the titles are a little smaller for the search results page. Around line 732 you’ll see the styling set for the archive entry title selectors, and we want to add the same for the search entry titles, please see below.
I contacted the Foodie Pro support team about the search results page, so this edit may or may not make it into a future release.
