Custom Advanced Search to search in 1 scope only

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a custom searchpage, search result, advanced search page and custom scope that configured in SSP. I can set the advanced search to redirect to my custom search result but the result is not from the custom scope (from "All Sites" scope). How do i configure it so that it will search from the custom scope via custom advanced search?

Custom Properties in Advanced Search Web Part - a bug??



we are trying to configure the advanced search web part and add some custom properties. Those properties are of type managed metadata.

We saw the following sample:


When try to use the web part, for example by add the property "product" and then search "when [product]="valueA",

we get not only results where the item has a property "product=valueA",

but also any item where in its body (full text) there is "valueA".

This behavior doesn't occur when searching non-custom property (for example "author=keren").

Is that a bug or are we missing something in the customization?

thanks a lot!

Sharepoint 2010 Advanced search box webpart - apply a default scope


My Advanced search box webpart return result from all the web appications and not just the one that it is in, i know i can create scope and spcify rules on it but i dont see an optoin of forcing
only this instance of web part to use a spific scope.

1. any way i can force it to use a scope behind the scenes instead of having the user select it.
2.i tried to use search core results web part but  ASB webpart is not open to connections even though in the properties i select "Allow connection", any way to make this combination work
3.since all my web application are using the same Search service appliction, could that be the reason that the ASB is returns results from those sites as well or is it that it returns result from all the web application in the farm?
3. Is there any place on the internet where i can find documentation on all the web parts.


Advanced Search does not show items from Custom List- why?



I have search working in general for site. However, when I run it only picks up files - not list items. Even List search in top right comes up with blank results.  

I read somewhere that this is switched off due to size of search results.

Can someone tell me how to include List Items in search?



Custom Advanced Search


Does anyone know of a way to debug Custom Advanced Search Webparts like these below? Our search doesn't seem to do anything and I can't figure out a way to debug it since we are using imbedded HTML inside C#.

Our code is like this this snippet:


"<div><table><tr><td width='133'></br></br></br> </td></tr></table></div>"



"<div><table cellpadding='

FAST Search for SP2010 scope setting works but not getting results.



I am trying this from last two days , but it does not work. I have created two scopes for FAST Search Query SSA , they appear in search center , but I am not getting any results back. I see them being fired in the FAST query log.

First one is a simple one:

New-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -SearchApplication "FAST Query SSA" -Name DCO -Description "All DCO Documents" -DisplayInAdminUI 1 -ExtendedSearchFilter "ContentSource:DCO"

Content source is a managed property. and i can just query "contentsource:dco" from the text box which gives me results.

When I fire the query i see it in FAST Search query log

"GET /cgi-bin/search?qtf_keyword:context=ssgid%3a%3a4d020606-8532-45d8-b09a-db11283cccb4%7cSPS-Location%3a%3a%7cSPS-Responsibility%3a%2c%3a%7c&rpf_navigation:hits=50&rpf_navigation:enabled=True&spell=suggest&qtf_parsekw:timezone=10&type=kwall&qtf_teaser:dynlength=185&resubmitflags=8192&language=en&query=CASHIERING&sortby=%2bdefault&qtf_lemmatize=True&offset=0&version=

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?

Advanced Search page no found



Currently when a user attempts to conduct an advance search they recieve a page not found message. When I tried to conduct a search myself I was able to enter in my search term, but the search results came up as page not found. On closer inpection I noticed that it is droping part of the URL.


http://sitesp.ca/sites/PETL-EPFT/searchcenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx becomes http://sitesp.ca/sites/PETL/searchcenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx

Has anyone seen this before? Any help would be greatly appreaciated.


QueryEx (Search) results and Custom Page Index


Hi All,

I done a web part which allow the user to query the search.asmx. It return the result fine against which I apply some xslt. However I need a mean to create a Page index. I only return the result based on a range defined in the query.

I need somehow to obtain the number of result the search is returning in total against what I only want to display on the screen.

The only way I sort of figure to do that is by first make a search just to obtain the number of result it will return in total and then make a search defining a range.

Has someone done something similar?


Search Scope Issue



I have 8 web applications containing different sites. One of the web applications is hosting a site called pmsportal.

Currently search results display files from all sites and from all web applications having matching results. That is like google!!! Sweet!!! BUT its over-performing! The owners of the pmsportal want search results to display only results from within their site ONLY...how do I do that? In the SSP Search Settings I have only two(2) Content Sources defined

(1) Local Office SharePoint Server sites

(2) PeopleSoft_Data

Someone please help.

Custom Search issue with freetext


Hi All,

My Environment : MOSS 2007 (sp2) with SQL Server 2005

I have a custom search webpart which uses FullTextSqlQuery to fetch the results from Index. I have a some keywords and a free text boxt to build the search query. Poeple enter their query by selecting the keywords and enter some free text into the text box.

Issue : When any PDF document (Not tested with .Doc) is searched using custom webpart with the numbers like "2,0233.21" I do not get any results returned even though the results are returned using the SharePoint out of box full text search. But when I search the content like "2+0233+21" I get results both in Out of box and in custom search webpart.

Requirement: The Custom search should be able to find the document when numbers like "2,0233.21" are entered. It should work exactly like the out of box search.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

DateTime custom managed property search fails with " Your query is malformed. Please rephrase your q

I've created a front end search page in Silverlight 4 for SharePoint Search.  Currently we are using WSS 3.0 + Search Server Express 2008 (v  The page interacts with the MOSS version of the search web service at:   <site collection>/_vti_bin/search.asmx The reason for this approach is the unique way the requirements specify the look and behavior of the results.  The built-in Search Center page or web parts will not satisfy these requirements.
