Why CSWP is not showing results on the page? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone!

    I'm trying to create a CSWP in my sharepoint online but although in the settings the CSWP is showing the results I expect, when I hit on save no results renders on the page. I get only the header and nothing more.

    I'm using the Office 365 Business Premium plan and I don't know if that is the reason. Should I use some enterprise plan to get CSWP working? 

    Many thanks!!!

  • SharePoint Online Plan 1 does NOT include Content Search Web Part (CSWP) even though it shows up and lets you add and configure it. Try to activate Cross Site Publishing feature which will give error message about a feature it depends on, the Search Driven Content feature. If you're on Plan 2, activating the Enterprise feature set will provide this.

  • Hi,

    Office 365 Business Premium don't support the Search web parts feature, please see the Feature availability across Office 365 plans as below(Ctrl+F search find "Search web parts"):
