I created an Item display template and a result type for this template, I can see the Result type when I try to change the webpart properties for a search results webpart but.... for the Control, I can only see the Default control. I created my custom control but I cannot see it in the control dropdowns... actually i only see the default control.

What am I missing? How can I add my Control display template to that dropdown?

  • Where did you upload the Item control (It should be under Display Templates --> Search)? Is it checked in and published? Commented Jul 9, 2015 at 19:00
  • Yes, I uploaded those files there

Go to Display templates--> Search. Edit properties of your Custom Control template and make sure in Target Control Type (Search) , Search Results is checked.
