I disabled the redirect to cart after adding a product so users can continue from where they were, which works great on category page and search results.

But when you are on advanced search page, the "product successfully added to your cart" message doesn't appear, even though the $this->getMessagesBlock()->toHtml(); exists in app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalogsearch/advanced/result.phtml

For example, you might add 3 products while on advanced search results, no message will appear, and as soon as you navigate to a category/product page, the success message appear for all products previously added to the cart while been on advanced search results.

Any ideas why messages are not fetched while on advanced results page? I am on Magento

Thanks in advance.
