hi i have little trouble with i guess.

i have the search widget which gives me a text box and a button at the beginning of content.

when i hit search and shows results and puts the searchbox+button at the end of that. i already removed css to test if it's a floating error or something. but well, wasnt the case

so that's what displays the results

@if (searchResults != null && searchResults.Count() > 0) {

thats the form

@using(Html.BeginForm("index", "search", new { area = "Orchard.Search" }, FormMethod.Get, new { @class = "search-form" })) {

        @Html.TextBox("q", (SearchViewModel)Model.ViewModel.Query)
        <button type="submit">@T("Absenden")</button>

and my

    <Place Parts_Search_SiteSettings="Content:1"/>
    <Place Parts_Search_SearchForm="Content:1"/>
    <Match ContentType="searchResults">
      <Place Parts_Content="Content:2"/>

i figured since in shapetracing it show sthe results as "content.cshtml" i had to place that part somewhere..

so i guess the thing not working is in here:

    <Match ContentType="searchResults">
      <Place Parts_Content="Content:2"/>

what am i doing wrong ?

well my page starts and in content it has

|Search Field|

|button| here


when i search for something and it finds results it renders to


1 of x Results

Bla bla bla ( results here )

and then puts

|Search Field|

|button| here

at the end of the content.


but i want that field + button to stay on top, and place the results after that.

Placement deals with local zones, but widgets are placed in top-level zones. You need a zone above content.
