I have an client who wants to basically add a default search for Universal. They are iframing into a standalone page, but they want all the FAQ results to surface at the get-go. I am trying to think of a way to do this where I don’t have “FAQs” in the searchbar but we can still surface results for a blank searchbar.
I could pin the results for a " " query? I don’t know if you could pin a saved query for a space.
The best way to accomplish this is to link to the search page with a query param already in the URL (like “FAQ”). We wouldn’t suggest actually having a search input present on the main site, but a button that just links to the search page with param appended should do the trick.
This isn’t a native feature in Answers, in part because the concept of “Showing all” on universal search is a little tenuous – it might not make sense for all verticals, and also gets trickier with third party backends.
