Kirby 3 Search input 1 character not working

When I only add 1 character in the search field it will show some strange behaviour.
It will show everything that is listed, not depending on what character is filled in. When a second character is added it will search like normal.

Is there a way to change the controler to start searching with 1 character input?

My controller:

return function ($site) {

  $results = page('icons')->children();
  $query   = get('q');

  if($query) {
    $results = page('icons')->search($query, 'title|tags|pack');

  return [
    'query'   => $query,
    'results' => $results,



try to set minlength to 1.


Can you implement that in my controller snippet please? I don’t know where to implement it.

Yea, sure. Should be something like this (untested):

@bvdputte Unfortunately your suggestion is not working. For now I use this for the search:
