I've added a SRWP to a page. Two Things:
The webpart displays results before a search is even executed. I need this to go away. I can get this to go away by turning off ranked results, but this also breaks the webpart. If I turn off ranked results, it stops returning results altogether, even though it will report a number of items found. Is there a way to make it so that the webpart is blank until a search is executed while simultaneously not breaking it?
I've followed this guide: http://stevemannspath.blogspot.com/2012/10/sharepoint-2013-pdf-preview-in-search.html
To enable PDF hover preview in search. It works, but it does not work for the webpart. Is there a way to get PDF hover preview to work for the webpart?
I'd greatly appreciate your help, but please be specific -- I'm a total SharePoint newbie. Thanks.
