7 search.api.php hook_search_page($results)

Override the rendering of search results.

A module that implements hook_search_info() to define a type of search may implement this hook in order to override the default theming of its search results, which is otherwise themed using theme('search_results').

Note that by default, theme('search_results') and theme('search_result') work together to create an ordered list (OL). So your hook_search_page() implementation should probably do this as well.


$results: An array of search results.

Return value

A renderable array, which will render the formatted search results with a pager included.
