I looked around a lot till I figured out that all I needed in order to better describe searchresults was to suggest that people look up from searchresults to pagelist on the Directives? page; see, I was looking specifically for searchresults, and couldn't figure out the use of the arguments :( If this page is redundant, maybe we should remove it - otherwise I could try to add more to it. -Radu?

This page describes how you can use the (:searchresults:)-directive to insert a list of other pages into the current wiki page as it is shown. There are lots of possible uses for this directive.
Dumps exactly what you would get out of a search for SearchString and consumes the directive text.
(:searchresults group=GroupName SearchString:)
Limits the search to a specific group.
(:searchresults list=normal SearchString:)
Excludes some special pages from the search results (currently RecentChanges, GroupHeader, GroupFooter and GroupAttributes)
(:searchresults fmt=simple SearchString:)
Removes the hierarchical display by group and lists pages' full names, as in GroupName.PageName
Note: Any combination of the above should work as well.
