Hello. You probably need to add the additional search parameters in the 
(:searchresults:) directive like this:

(:searchresults $:Status=-HIDDEN:)

If you don't want with the search results to be displayed such a line:
  Results of search for group=Main $:Status=-HIDDEN query: 

then, instead of "(:searchresults...", use "(:pagelist request=1 req=1...".

Usually, the search results page in PmWiki is [[Site.Search]], or it may be 
localized like [[PmWikiPl.Szukaj]], where you can modify the (:searchresults:) 
directive. Or, if the page with the searchbox contains (:searchresults:), this 
page will be used for displaying the results.
