Make Layered Navigation Visible After Site-Wide Search

Hey All,

We’ve noticed the base Magento install has a layout that takes place after a site-wide search, which excludes the Layered Navigation in the left sidebar column.

I was trying to refresh my memory as to what needs to be adjusted in order to make the Layered Navigation visible within the left sidebar after a site-wide search has taken place.

Right now, the newsletter sign-up is the only block visible.

I tried going through and simply editing catelogsearch.xml, but was unable to see any changes, or other attempts received some errors.

Any help on this is appreciated.
