Pawtucket2 - controlling search and browse results - format and sorting

Site is at I have read the following articles in detail:

But the advice given there doesn't seem to match up with the actual contents of the app.confs (for either Prov or Pawtucket). For instance:

  • I don't see any reference to result_views_for_ (obviously the table name would be ca_objects)
  • There is no 'Results' folder in any Theme (including Default or Copyme) - should I create one?
  • I don't see any reference for result_sort_options_for_

So I'm confused at to how to proceed. I am attempting to do two things:

  1. Make search results such as appear more like Browse results such as - larger images.
  2. Ideally, give website visitors the ability to control the sort or display parameters - I'm sure I saw this somewhere but now can't locate it.

Thank you for any help!


  • This site does the Advanced Search results EXACTLY how we want - large images, and ability to sort and view as. This should be very simple for me to implement, but I just can't find the appropriate code. If anyone could point me to the right code, I'd be most grateful.

  • I believe this is to do with List and Grid results, but again am a bit confused as the instructions I've found don't seem to marry up with the actual code. Can anybody assist please?
