Phil,

Thanks for the help! And for the feature update.

Testing bears out what you say about limiting parameters to ?l=25&f=html on queries: The highest-priority (i.e., weighted) event shows up at the top of the search results, irrespective of its start date. That's exactly what we're after.


But I'm struggling to figure out what I need to modify to get calendar searches to run those limited parameters by default — i.e., is this something that can/must be changed on a per-block basis, or is it on the template level? It seems that irrespective of the value of the Calendar URL field in the Calendar | Calendar: Featured Search block I've been using to test, search results are still returned with &unrolled=1 and &d1=yyyy-mm-dd&d2=&fl=&s=start_time&sd=asc appended to the parameters.


I also discovered an interesting quirk here which you may be able to offer insight on: I dropped the block Footer | Site Search on the test calendar page I'm working off of to see what would happen if I ran searches from that (so there are now two search forms on that page, Site Search and Calendar: Featured Search). By default (i.e., upon checking settings after placing the block), the Search URL option was checked and its value set to /calendar/search in the Site Search block settings.


If I run searches on my test string (museum) from this block, I get "Your search did not yield any results." But if I then re-run the search using the search form on that search-results page, the results display as I'd like them to, with the weighted result on top — despite the query also containing a bunch of other parameters (?l=25&f=html&unrolled=1&q=museum&d1=2018-01-17&d2=&fl=&s=start_time&sd=desc). At least, for that one specific string. The results were not reproducible with other test strings that should have functioned the same.


Thanks again,

Hi Maureen,

Just wanted to follow up to say it's working and perfectly. Thanks again!

Maureen,

I do not see any way to create a custom block under Design / Templates. I can view what's there and export, but not create or import. After consulting the KB, I assume this is because I do not have template access. I just want to confirm this is the case before proceeding with requesting it.


Best,

Thank you! The first solution is simple enough, but I'll follow up if I run into trouble creating the custom block. Thanks again.
