All of the students have been placed, and all bios have been archived. However, the search filter bar is not showing on the Meet the Students page – only the Search button appears. Is there a way to still have the filtered search bar appear even if there are currently no students available?

I also wanted to add additional text on the page indicating that all of the students are currently placed and that student bios for the second semester are coming soon. But the text doesn’t appear when I add it to the editor.

    Do you suggest both changes? Both suggestions sound good to me, but I wasn't sure if I had to choose between the two.

    We could combine the two, if you can produce a generic "No students available at the moment.." type text, but if you want more control over that we could use a standard text and allow for you to override it from the admin.

    Sounds good. Here is the default text "Thank you for your interest in hosting an exchange student. Currently, there are no students available. Please check back soon." - If this is too long, then we can cut the first sentence.

    We'll work on these updates and stage them over the weekend - please just let us know wen you plan to stage and test the Edit Flow plugin.

    Sounds good. I probably won't get around to staging and testing the Edit Flow plugin until later next week.

We have updated the Q Search plugin to enable for an editable field to display a text notice when there are no published students available to search.

You can preview the updates on the staging server here: http://ccigh.staging.wpengine.com/host-families/meet-our-students/

We have validated the updates on both the desktop and handheld theme versions.

Edit the page and look for the “Search Settings” panel to update the text displayed.

If you are happy with these updates we can push them to the live server early next week.

    Looks good. One question - will the search filter bar and button appear when student bios are added? Figured they do, but just want to confirm. Thanks.
  • Ray
    Yes - you should test this on the staging version by publishing and unpublishing student profiles to see the difference in the behavior of the page.
