    Hi There,

    I am trying to adjust the text on a blog list when no results are found.

    I’ve seen the forum post at and am ready to add the loop-search.php to edit the Nothing Found. Sorry no posts matched your criteria message.

    However, I’m not sure what to actually put on the loop-search.php. Would you be able to send over an example of what to put in the file? For example, I’d like it it to say “Coming Soon” rather than Nothing Found.

    Thank you for your help!


    Hey bimsenfold,

    Here is the piece of code in the loop-search.php that you can edit and put whatever you need in there.

    Best regards,


    I’ve added loop-search.php to the child theme, however, on, the Nothing Found notice still appears.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    See below



    Thank you for the update.

    The loop-search.php file already exists inside the includes folder of the parent theme, so if you want to override it, create a new folder called “includes” in the child theme directory and create a copy of the “loop-search.php” file inside. You can then do the necessary modifications in that file.

    Best regards,


    I think I’ve updated this correctly, but it is still showing ‘Nothing Found” – would you be able to double check for me?

    Thank you very much!


    Hi bimsenfold,

    Best regards,


    I am having the same issue. I have added the includes folder and the loop-search.php file to my child theme and made the changes. It still shows the old search results text.


    Hi mcdorman4,

    Can you give us temporary admin access to your website in the private content box below, so that we can have a closer look?

    Best regards,


    Hi There –

    I’m still trying to work on this, too. I have the loop-search.php in the Includes folder of my Child theme. When I am logged in via FTP the loop-search.php file is not empty, but through the theme editor on the WordPress dashboard this file is empty (as you noted above).

    What can I do to rectify this?

    Thank you!



    Can you edit the file via FTP? If so, then you can do the modifications there. We are not really sure why it’s empty on the default editor. It is possible that you don’t have the right permission.

    Best regards,


    What should the permission settings be. It is strange that some of the child theme files appear with content in the default editor, but this one does not. I added the content via FTP, which is why I am confused about it.

    Thank you so much!



    The files permission should be set to 644 by default and folders to 755.


    Thank you for the update.

    Best regards,
