I have a ready and tested (on a different site: and it worked perfectly) Display template (made up of 2 HTML files)
This morning I was trying to upload the same Display template in the:
directory of a different site. First I was getting a 'You don't have access' message. The reason seemed to be because of 'Scripting Capabilities' being turned off by default for the root site collection in Office 365.
So, we turned this on. It says that it takes 24 hours to take effect, but after around 5 hours I tried again and it let me upload, and I thought that for this reason it must have taken effect (this might not be the case as you will see).
When going into the Search redirection page and trying to edit the Search Result web part, under the Display Templates section, only the Default Results Control Display Template is being shown.
This is what I want to achieve and the same thing that I managed on a different site:
I have no idea why. My only explanation would be that it's not fully functional because the 24 hours have not passed yet. Could this be the case?
I would appreciate any insight regarding this from experienced users.
