If you can show us where you have got to then we can try to help.

I haven't tried much from the template I'm just a little unsure of how to call a particular part of a blog post into the search result.

In any template, you can add <perch:showall /> to see all the content that is available for you to use in that template.

No, that looks like it's working unless you can be more specific.

Well I trying to make a nice search feature so that users can search through all the blog posts. And then display the thumbnail and title. I though the by putting <perch:showall /> it would display and help but I don't see anything....

<perch:showall /> is a template tag. You need to put it in a Perch template.

I can see it on the page which indicates to me you have put it on the page and not in a template.

okay yeah because I thought that this would be to see everything I could control with the search. Just might to go away and do more reading on search function

It will show you what Drew explained it would show you, everything available in the template you use it in. It won't do anything if you stick it in the page as it is a template tag, the same as any other.

okay sorry i think I'm understanding, I will give it a go.

okay thats cool thank you. I'm not completely sure where to go from there, but that is helpful.
