Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the CSB configuration
  2. Open the Pages menu
  3. Open the Category menu
  4. Select and Edit a category page
  5. Click on the Search Results Component image on that page 
  6. Nothing happens


The Search Results is not an actual component but a placeholder present by default on every category page as soon as they are created since every category page by definition should have a results section.
As a result, it cannot be configured like the other components can by clicking on it.


The Search results options are configured under Appearance / Search Results and these settings apply to all pages.
