I have my news page set up so that it also displays a Search bar by first having:
$static = 'true'; #this is the important part
$search = true;
When I put in a search criteria (e.g., UFO) the results that are shown are correct, but the problem is that if I click on one the main news page is re-displayed, not the article.
The URL shown is not a friendly URL, but otherwise correct (e.g., http://www.spyglasshill.com/blog.php?id=3)as if it were going to display the correct article. But it's the main news page that is shown.
