Understanding search panel views

The search panel provides different views of search results depending on the retrieved content types. This topic provides an overview of the different types of views and how they can be used.

List view

List view displays the retrieved assets as a list with columns of fields. This view is available for all content types. The following illustration is an example of list view.

Mixed view

Mixed view is a combination of list and grid views. The assets with a preview appear in the grid, and other assets appear in the list. The following illustration is an example of a mixed view with images in a grid and authors in a list.

Taxonomy view
