We’ve identified a problem that occurs when you use a FiboSearch + Elementor + Crocoblock JetWooBuilder combination in your store.
- Identifying the issue
- Implementing the new search archive template
The issue is that the index building process seems to get stuck at some point. Elementor’s search results page doesn’t work properly, either. The reason is that the Crocoblock overwrites Elementor’s default Archives template – this causes further issues with other 3rd party solutions, FiboSearch included. The upshot is that your customers are presented with a half-baked or inaccurate search results page.
To solve the problem, you need to create a new Archives template for Crocoblock.
As presented on the print screen,
from your Dashboard navigate to Crocoblock →
Woo Page builder →
at the top select “Create New Template” →
from the dropdown list “The Template for” select “Archive item” →
(optionally) name your fresh template so that it is recognizable to you – in our case a simple “Test-archive” →
hit the “Create template” button
Notice: You can also pick a suggested template for your archive that will be already implemented in Elementor.
You’ll then enter the Elementor builder. There, you can easily create the layout you want for your archive. We’ll build a quick, simple archive to illustrate. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Elementor’s basics, please visit our in-detail piece and learn how to use it to your advantage.
In Elementor, you can pick any archive-related items from a menu to the left:
We went with a simple “Products grid” with a default “Preset 1” layout. Here’s the look inside Elementor:
After finishing, remember to hit the green “Publish” button at the bottom-left and you’ll be good to go.
Then, you have to point to the newly created template in JetWooBuilder settings. To do so, please
navigate to WooCommerce →
Settings tab →
switch to the JetWooBuilder tab and scroll down to the Search Page Template section →
select the newly created search archive (“Test-archive” in this case) →
press the “Save changes” button at the bottom of the page
