The Search API module can’t display result snippets

The Search API module can’t display result snippets—the full node output displays as the search result.

Workaround: Create a Search result view mode to output something smaller than the full node. To add the workaround, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to Structure > Content types > Article > Manage display.
  2. In the Custom display settings section, select the Search result highlighting input checkbox.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Go to Structure > Content types > Article > Manage display > Search result highlighting input. The following settings control each search result’s output.
  5. To display result snippets, edit the appropriate field. For example, to make the Body field display result snippets, complete the following steps:
    1. In Format, click Trimmed.
    2. Click the gear icon. The webpage displays the Trimmed limit field.
    3. In the Trimmed limit field, enter 200 to trim the body field to 200 characters.
    4. Click Update.

You have now configured the Body field to display trimmed output as the search result.
