I need to set up a PNP search function to only search a specific site, only shows documents, and doesn't show any results when no criteria is entered. 

The below query works how I want it to search, however it shows results when I haven't entered in any criteria.

{searchTerms} IsDocument:1 -fileextension:aspx Path:"https://yourtenant.sharepoint.com/sites/yoursite*"

By just entering in:

{inputQueryText}

it only shows results when I have entered in a search criterion, however it doesn't allow me to restrict my results to 1 site and document type. 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
