The "Quick Search Block" is a useful spot to outline specific filters that you have built out and want to put together in a list that displays well on any page. This article outlines the settings that can be adjusted with the quick search block.
There are a few important things to keep in mind with the Quick Search Block:
You can choose any search list in the Quick Search Block wherever you created it ,and the same quick search list and corresponding data can be used regardless of the style or page where you add this block.
In most instances, Lofty suggests that you use the "Preset Filter" to help you to populate the listings for your quick search links and keep the listing source set to "All Listings" unless you really want to limit the searchable listings in the link. For more information on filters and listings, please reference this article: Listing Filter Basics.
