Can you clarify what you mean by not work at all? Is this view within the simple_xml_examples app space, or do you have it in a separate app? If separate, do you have the referenced autodiscover.js in your appserver/static directory? Does it work if you remove the token reference within the search?

If it otherwise works when you remove the tokens in your search, then go ahead and try this xml to ensure that the search gets reloaded on token change.

Yep. I can confirm that the token_safe you specified in the XML makes it work. Thanks so much!
