Can you still use the [search-region] tag or do you need to create a new
usertag to incorporate the query results with the results template?
Up to now I've tended to approach it by just replacing [search-region]
in the template with a query tag (and item-* with sql-* etc.), and then
controlling the output by passing values through in the query string.
Any pointers to a more elegant solution would be appreciated.
