I am working on a custom theme. My issue is that when I use the search form it will show the search results as it is suppose to but when I use the pagination on the page it just takes me back to my home page.

I have wordpress installed in a wordpress sub-directory that is accessible from /blog. I have a static front page (front-page.php) and blog page (home.php) and the site works fine for the most part. I am having a few issues with post per page on the initial blog page but I already have a question for that posted on this site.

This issue is that the search page works on the initial search submission but the pagination does not maintain the /search/%s format.

EDIT I was able to get it to work by changing the form method="post" to method="get" but this appends the ?s=%s I would like to keep this with clean URLs if possible so I am leaving this open still until I can figure this out.

I have provided my code below:

search.php

<?php
/**
* The template for displaying Search Results pages.
*
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage EHRScopev2
*/
?>

<?php get_header(); ?>      

<div id="main">
    <div id="content">
        <h2 class="home-label"><?php printf(__('Search Results for: %s', 'ehrscope'), '<strong><em>' . get_search_query() . '</em></strong>'); ?></h2>
        <?php
        /* Run the loop to output the page.
        * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file
        * called loop-page.php and that will be used instead.
        */
        get_template_part('loop', 'single');
        ?>
        <div class="page-nav">
            <?php if (get_next_posts_link()) { ?>
            <span class="nav-button older-posts"><?php next_posts_link( '&laquo; Older posts'); ?></span>
            <?php 
            }
            if (get_previous_posts_link()) { ?>
            <span class="nav-button newer-posts"><?php previous_posts_link( 'Newer posts &raquo;' ); ?></span>
            <?php } ?>
        </div>       
    </div>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
</div>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

searchform.php

<form method="post" action="<?php echo home_url('/'); ?>" class="search-form" role="search">
    <fieldset>
        <input type="text" name="s" value="<?php echo (is_search()) ? get_search_query() : __('Search...', 'ehrscope'); ?>" />
        <input class="btn-submit" type="submit" value="<?php _e('Submit', 'ehrscope'); ?>"/>
    </fieldset>
</form>

loop-single.php

<?php
/**
* The loop that displays a single post.
*
* The loop displays the posts and the post content. See
* http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop to understand it and
* http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags to understand

Did you try to add the pagination inside the loop? Not outside it? –  Ciprian Sep 6 '12 at 22:52

1 Answer 1

   <form method="post" action="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/customsearch.php" class="search-form" role="search"> ... </form>

customsearch.php in content :

customsearch.php should be here: yoursite.com/dir/customsearch.php

same issue. The search results show fine but the pagination does not maintain the search term and just goes back to the fron-page. Thanks though –  Jeremy Sep 6 '12 at 19:48
