I would simply like to create a search bar (a text field) that when filled out will return a list of a certain content type on a new page.

Right now with Views I have created a search bar (text field) as an exposed filter but it also shows all the content with it. What I want is to have the search bar but have the results content show in a new window when the search bar is submitted.

Can this be accomplished with Views?

At advanced, the column at the right, in the view config you can set the filters to apear as a block. You could place this at any random page and when submitting you will be send to the viewpage desiplaying the results from the filter.


You can use contextual filters and tell the view to display nothing if the filter from the URL was empty.
