Template overwrite active (search result with image)
In order to display thumbnails in the search result list it is necessary to enable this parameter and to overwrite the template, which is responsible for displaying the search results. To do the template overwrite you may copy the file "default_results.php" included in the installation zip manually to the folder "templates/<YourTemplateName>/html/com_search/search/". You have to substitute <YourTemplateName> with the folder name of the template you are using for your site. If the (sub)directories do not exist yet, you have to create them manually. Please notice that the template overwrite has been tested for the standard Joomla! templates "rhuk_milkyway" and "Ja_Purity" only. If you use another site template, you have to create resp. adapt your overwrite template by your own. The overwrite template in the installation zip may be helpful for you.
