Magento: Remove ‘Search Options’ Layered Nav from Search Results
There are 2 ways (that I know of) to get rid of the ‘Search Options’ left nav on the search results page. The first is a bit of a lazy trick and the second is I guess the proper way:
1. Go to System > Configuration > Catalog and find the ‘Catalog Search’ dropdown tab. Inside there is a text fields labelled ‘Apply Layered Navigation if Search Results are Less Than’. By setting this to -1 it sorta bypasses the proper use. If we set it to 0 then it’ll show for all, if we set it to 1 it still shows when 1 item is listed but setting it to -1 seems to work fine.
2. Go to Catalog -> Attributes -> Manage Attributes and select the attributes that appear in the ‘Search Options’, and select “NO” from “Use In Layered Navigation” drop down.
