The search results page created in Elementor doesn’t display products

One common mistake might occur while creating a search results page in the Elementor – picking the wrong page template. Many users create a WordPress search template instead of a WooCommerce search template.

Make WooCommerce search results in right way

Notice: if you’re not very familiar with Elementor, please read our article on building an Elementor pop-up. We described its workflow and layout in detail, so it might help with any Elementor-related cases.

To begin with:

1. Go to Templates -> Theme Builder -> Add new

2. Create a Product Archive page

3. Add Archive Products and the Archive title widget to your template.

4. After finishing creating a template, set the condition to Include -> Search results

That way, the search results page will be created properly.

Still doesn’t work?

Check if you have more than one Product Archive template. 

If so, open all templates that aren’t “Search Results” and add an extra condition: Exclude -> Search Results


Sometimes excluding “Search Results” from the Shop page still doesn’t work. In such cases, create an empty fibosearch-search-results.php file in the root of your child theme and paste the following code.

get_header( 'shop' );

$frontend    = new \Elementor\Frontend();
$template_id = 100; // Your search results template ID

echo \Elementor\Plugin::instance()->frontend->get_builder_content_for_display( $template_id, true );

get_footer( 'shop' );

The $template_id variable is the post ID of the Elementor template with WooCommerce search results. You can find this ID on the URL. Go to Templates -> Theme Builder -> Products Archive and open the template with the search results. The URL should be like this In this case, there $template_id is 100, but in your case, it will be a different number.

After creating this file, use the below snippet to force Elementor to use the newly created template. Open the functions.php in your child theme, add the code at the end, or install the Code Snippets plugin and apply it as a snippet.

add_filter( 'template_include', function ( $template ) {
	if ( isset( $_GET['dgwt_wcas'] ) ) {
		$search_template = locate_template( 'fibosearch-search-results.php' );

		if ( file_exists( $search_template ) ) {
			return $search_template;

	return $template;
}, PHP_INT_MAX - 1 );
