    I dont think there is, because that is the default search layout.

    Well there must be a way to remove filter for actual search results. It is really silly to have two sets of search filters displayed when one has searched.

    Can anyone please tell me where the code for the search results page is located so i can remove it. Thanks in advance

    Hi

    There is a “Quick and dirty solution”: Put #searchForm {display:none;} to your stylesheet and after that you will see only the search results.

    Hi! I hope someone can help me.
    I need to do a search like this: http://www.clubhabitue.com.br/index.php
    I’m using k2 and JAK2 Extra Fields search filter. I created two categories: restaurants and services with 3 extrafields ( 3 differents cities). The problem is that when the restaurant search are in a position above the service search only works the restaurant search, and when the services search are above the restaurant search only works the services search.
    Sorry!! my english is very bad. Thank you so much. 🙂
