Introduction


Hi folks. Today we are going to discuss a little about display templates in SharePoint Server 2013 as an intro and then in Part II we’ll modify and show you guys the output of my Search page. So let’s just jump into the topic. Display templates are templates used in Web Parts that use search technology (referred to in this article as Search Web Parts) to show the results of a query made to the search index. Display templates control which managed properties are shown in the search results, and how they appear in the Web Part. Each display template is made of two files: an HTML version of the display template that you can edit in your HTML editor, and a .js file that SharePoint uses.

Description


You can navigate Display Template by below URL just replace yours

E.g.- https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/sites/Bhawana/_catalogs/masterpage/Forms/AllItems.aspx



Under Search you can find two template files starts from Control and Item, again divided into .html and .js. So Search result page when we are looking .html will contain all design related elements like the table, divs, panels like that and in a .js file all related scripts used in .html.
 



 
So if you want to customize your search result page below are the elements and controls we need to take care. And based on our need we can alter, remove, hide, and update. In fact, we have full control over the elements visible on this page. Also, we can restrict the audience by viewing and accessing the search contents.
