Search Widgets improvements and configurability

    Details

      Description

      Widget Templates (previously known as Application Display Templates) allows customizing a widget's layout using Freemarker or Velocity templates. Up until now, the ability to customize Liferay's Search widgets was limited to styling changes via Liferay's themes. This limitation led many developers to use the search widgets as an example for custom development instead of using the widgets in a production environment.

      With Widget Templates, the layout and look & feel of search widgets can be customized. For example, The Search Results widget can be configured to display a card layout, and the document properties (like author, modified date, etc) can be shown or hidden.

      Each widget has 2-3 widget templates OOTB, and customers can create their own widget templates.

      The following widgets now support widget templates:

      • Search Bar
      • Search Results
      • Sort
      • Category Facet
      • Folder Facet
      • Modified Facet
      • Site Facet
      • Tag Facet
      • Type Facet
      • User Facet
      • Custom Facet
