I'm working with on-premises SharePoint 2013. I have a library full of training content of various formats, mostly Microsoft Office (pptx, xlsx, docx), as well as some pdfs and video. I created a list, which I defined as a custom content type, with each topic in it, along with links to files in the library that houses the content, as well as a title, a description of the topic, etc.. Since a search can be done on and return only custom content types, I created this list so as to facilitate search returning just the topics of the training, arranged under one link, rather than links to all of the individual files.
Rather than making individual pages for each topic, I'd like to create a results landing page that, when someone clicks on one of the links supplied by search, is populated with the information in the list (title and description of the training topic they clicked on as well as links to the content files).
The question I have is: how do I pass information from the search result list, when clicked on, to that other page? I see there are forms to view lists, but I need to style and display the content, and I don't see how to get there from the built-in forms layout tool. Is there another way?
