Any Tool to provide site search

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi, Is there is any tool available using which i can implement site search in my .net application. My requirement is the search should work on some specific columns of some specific tables and result could include different data from different categories. Just like if we search any key word on Orkut it disdplays data from User, Community, Updates etc. Thanks in advance for your help. Vikas Chandgothia.

Branding SharePoint 2010 - Ribbon tool bar twice on search site

Hello everyone! I'm branding a SharePoint 2010 site and I'm stuck in a problem. The ribbon tool bar is appearing twice on the top of my search sub-site. Everywhere else is good (appearing just once). I did review all my code on the master page and everything seems to be good. Also compared the custom master page with a "v4.master" and all the sharepoint controls and placeholders are just exactly the same. Any ideas of what's going on? Here's the image: From

A Simple XML-driven Tool: Monitor Your Web Site's Activity with COM and Active Scripting


This article describes a simple Web site monitoring tool built with XML, JScript, Windows Script Host, and COM objects. Although it is not intended to replace complete Web site monitoring software products, it has many useful features that help to keep Web servers up and running. An XML configuration file specifies which Web sites to monitor and the actions to be taken if the site isn't functioning properly. In addition, the tool can be scheduled to run at any specified interval using the Windows Task Scheduler. Functions that probe the sites, log events, and send e-mail notifications are written in JScript.

Top-Level Search Scope not showing in Sub-Site


I've got a site 'B' created under site 'A' in SharePoint. When I'm at Site A, I can search and find things that exist in both A&B. However, when I'm in B, the 'highest' search scope I can pick is 'B.' I'd like to be able to select one step higher so that I can search A&B from any page. Is this possible?

Search Usage Reports Missing for Site


We have Usage Analysis enabled on our employee portal farm.  The SSP in this farm crawls all local SharePoint sites and one child farm.  When we view search and query reports, one of the site collections (in a dedicated web app) is missing.  All other web apps/site collections appear in the search/query reports.  The missing site collection is using the standard search pages and web parts - no customization with the object model that might break usage logging.

Has anyone else ran into this or know the solution?

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

Web Site Admin Tool - cannot establish connection



I have a question with this tool.  I have a database listed in the App_folder, and the database has a connection in Server explorer.  The connection string is listed in the web.config file, and I am able to add users and roles with the Web Admin Tool.  However, when in the Web Admin Tool, under Configuration tab, I receive an error when I click on the "test" button.  The error reads

 " Could not establish a connection to the database.
If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider."

How can this be, and how do I correct this?



Portal Search Work - Site Collection Search Does Not


In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.  However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to do local searches at the site collection level and as a result we are presented with the typical error below.


No results matching your search were found.

  1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
  2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
  3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
  4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.  We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.


Any thoughts to this?

ASP.net Web Site Administration tool unable to connect ro my SQL DB

Hi, I am new to VWD and i am trying to use the Provider Configuration in the ASP.net Web Site Administration tool to configure my Web site management data.

When i select "test" it give me the following error message: "Could not establish a connection to the database. If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider." I have the aspnet_regsql to create a DB, my IIS is already installed and enable but the VWD ASP.net Web Site Administration tool refuse to connect to my SQL DB.What may be the problem and how can i rectify it.Thanks

SharePoint Search not working on one site collection

I am running into some weird behavior with how SharePoint is crawling site/list data.  Let's say our main intranet site is http://www.intranet.com: Most of our older sites are setup with URLs like http://www.intranet.com/sites/sitename .  Crawling is working fine on these sites and I can execute a search and find all of the results I would expect.  At some point recently (before I joined this firm), they made a decision that all new sites would have the URL http://www.intranet.com/SiteDirectory/sitename .  Any sites which fall into this bucket are not being crawled, it would seem. If I check Central Adman>Shared Services>Search Administration, I can see that the first content source being crawled is http://www.intranet.com so I would imagine this crawl should pick up anything under /SiteDirectory/ but it is not.  I also checked the Crawl Settings on this page and it is set to "Crawl everything under the hostname for each start address".  Lastly, I see that there were only 21 errors in the last full crawl but none of these errors apply to a /SiteDirectory/ site. In short, what could be causing the crawl to apparently skip all of the sites within /SiteDirectory/ and how can this best be fixed?
