Is there a way to move the search result filters from the top (which is kinda weird) to the left side? Most popular sites filter their searches using a left module, not drop downs at the top.
@fongj - The search page in Lithium is one which is not easily customized since it only has one unified component called Search Encapsulation, which contains the filters and the results. So, you cannot drag and drop to change the layout. One work around is that you make some styling changes using CSS, but you'd have to test that thoroughly to see if that works well on all the devices.
The top position of the search filter options is a result of reviewing the experience to work on a responsive view across device screen sizes. If you look at most web search pages you will find that they also put the search filter horizontally on top and departed from the sidebar position.
You can re-position the Lithium search filter to sidebar using CSS, but then you need to work out how it reverts back to a one column layout on tablet and mobile screens. I would actually suggest sticking with the top position as most user tests show the filters are most visible and used there.
