Trying to find it with shape tracing but it ends up showing me zone-content
What cshtml do I have to create in order to override the tag listing that is shown for example at
http://localhost/Tags/infrastructure i.e. the items under /Tags/xxxx?

I think the only way to override this shape is to override the "Orchard.Tags/Home/Search.cshtml" in your Theme.

Can you elaborate? What is the name of the .cshtml file I need to create in my themes view folder?

Found it.

Runs down to:

Once I knew it is the search view, things started falling into place.

Excelt I still wonder where the list is being rendered. Search.chhtml refers to another listing. And the shape browser looks empty.

Search.cshmtl calls Display with an List of ContentItems as parameter. So each content item will be rendered as summary shape for that contentitem. If you want to change the render behavior you have to take care of the rendering of this list of contentitems in search.cshtml.

I did this in the Search Index.cshtml and my code is:
@model Orchard.Search.ViewModels.SearchViewModel
@using Orchard.ContentManagement
@using Orchard.Mvc.Html;

    IEnumerable<object> searchResults = Model.ContentItems;
    int i = 1;

    @if (HasText(Model.Query)) {
        if (!searchResults.Any()) {
            <p class="search-summary">@T.Plural("There is <em>one</em> result", "<em>zero</em> results", searchResults.Count())</p>
        } else {
            <p class="search-summary">@T.Plural("There is <em>one</em> result", "<em>{1} - {2}</em> of <em>{0}</em> results", Model.TotalItemCount, Model.StartPosition, Model.EndPosition)</p>
    @if (searchResults != null && searchResults.Any())
        <table id="searchtable" class="table">
            @foreach (dynamic searchResult in searchResults)
                var cl = "odd";
                if (i % 2 == 0) {cl = "even";}
                <tr class="@cl">
                            var url = Url.ItemDisplayUrl((IContent)searchResult.ContentItem);
                        <h4><a href="@url">@searchResult.ContentItem.TitlePart.Title</a></h4>

    <style type="text/css">
        ul {
            list-style: none;
In this case searchResults is my list of contentItems. I have to iterate throw them and because I know that every content item in my search index has a titlepart - I grep that and display only the title and the type of the contentitem.
