Customizing the "No Results Found" Message in Divi

One common request from Divi users is personalizing the "No Results Found" message that appears when a search yields no results. By default, Divi displays the following message:

No Results Found
The page you requested could not be found. Try refining your search, or use the navigation above to locate the post.

However, you may want to tailor this message to better suit your website's tone and content. With a bit of custom code, this can be easily achieved. Below, we'll guide you through customizing the "Nor Results Found" message.

Customizing the "No Results Found" Message using PHP

To change the "No Results Found" message, add the following code to your child theme’s functions.php file or using a plugin such as Code Snippets. This example demonstrates how to replace the default message with a custom one:

function customize_no_results_text( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) {
    if ( 'Divi' === $domain ) {
        if ( $text === 'No Results Found' ) {
            return 'No products found';
        }
        if ( $text === 'The page you requested could not be found. Try refining your search, or use the navigation above to locate the post.' ) {
            return 'Try refining your search or use the menu above to navigate the product categories.';
        }
    }
    return $translated_text;
}
add_filter( 'gettext', 'customize_no_results_text', 10, 3 );

This piece of code uses the gettext filter to check if the current text that needs translation matches the default "No Results Found" message text. If it does, it returns the custom text instead.

Simply change the returned text to the text you'd like to display when a search has no results.

Customizing the "No Results Found" message in Divi can enhance the user experience by providing more contextually appropriate feedback. With this simple modification, you can tailor this message to better fit your site's needs.
