Why search do not work if I leave only 1-2 parameters to the Advanced Search Box?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have add advanced search box to the SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise portal. Default configuration works fine and I can also uncheck few parameters, but problem exists if only 1-3 parameters are checked and other parameters are unchecked. I would like to leave only "All of these words" and "Show Exact phrase" and remove the rest of parameters. However if I uncheck following, the search do nothing. SharePoint refresh the site, but do nothing. -Uncheck: Show "exact phrase" search box -Uncheck:Show "none of these words" search box -Uncheck:Show the scope picker -Uncheck:Etc.Kenny_I

How to Make Properties Search Work in the Advanced Search page?


I work in SharePoint 2007. I have created "Advanced Search" page. It is the standard advanced search page and is created by choosing "search center" option when you "create site" in site settings.

The top part of this advanced search page has fields to enter search terms. This will search full text of documents. This part works.

Bottom part of the search page includes properties search. I know how to add or change those properties in the list. It is done through XML file which can be found in "Edit Page", "modify the web part", and it is in properties.

I have added a new property in this XML file but it does not appear in the drop-down list in the search page. I know that this property must exist and data has to be populated in at least one record for this property to show up in the drop-down list. This has been done and still the added property does not show up in the drop-down list in the search page.

What else do I need to do to make properties search work?


Thank you very much in advance for your help.

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.


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?



Advanced People Search

Hi All, I'm having a problem with the Advanced People seach webpart, one of the fields under 'Search Options' is Memberships. I have updated it inline with this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935196, which now brings back results when searching by using a distribution list name, but I'm still getting no results when searching by a Site Name (as displayed under in the "Memberships" webpart on a mysite) Also is there a way to change the word "Memberships" in the webpart, to something like "Site Memberships"

I can't get my search paging webpart to work

I created a page and put a core results web part on it.  I changed the url to myurl?k=pdf (to show a bunch of pdfs).  This works well.  I customized my xslt to show the columns that I want.   I added a paging webpart and it doesn't seem to work.  I added a refinement panel, and that does work.  Both are set to user query.  I changed both "Maximum page links before current" and "Maximum page links after current" to 2 so I would definitely see paging.

How to add advanced search and results to the site?

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

MySite Turned off and People search does not work.

Hi everyone, as one of the requirements for our sharepoint server we have turned the "Mysite" functionality off.When I try to click on a resault of a people search to view someone's profile I get a 404 error. Obviously this is due to turning off Mysite.My question is, is this a bug in SharePoint? Why would turning off MySite not redirect the profile to Userdisp.aspx instead of Person.aspx (releated to mysite)??What I am interested in knowing is has anyone been able to edit the people resault page and redirect the profile information to userdisp.aspx instead of person.aspx?Thanks for any help!

Advanced text search...

See requirement examples below.... any suggestions / ideas are helpful.... I am using SQL server 2005 and I have a limitation that I should not use full text search. I have a table with nvarchar(100) column which holds data. Users will enter search terms on text box with predefined grammar. See examples below..... 1. BEFORE operator "intersection before(n) car" finds intersection when it precedes car by n terms, where n is the nearness value 2. NEAR operator "intersection near(n) car" finds intersection within n terms of car, where n is the nearness value  

Sharepoint 2010 search cannot work at all

HI I have just installed Sharepoint 2010 trial version. I installed with a 2 server setup - sharepoint and SQL was on separate Virtual machines. Previously the search could work. Crawl logs showed all success. Until yesterday I began to fiddle around with PDF iFilter and configuring it to make sure PDF could be searched. I consulted the following websites(http://sptwentyten.wordpress.com/2009/12/30/install-foxit-pdf-ifilter-on-sharepoint-2010-beta/ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357 http://www.codeproject.com/KB/sharepoint/PDFiFIlterSharePoint2010.aspx) but faced problem along the way such as - issuing IISreset command (In the end I had to use services to stop/start IIS Admin Service), -restarting Sharepoint Search Server 14 (net stop osearch14, net start osearch14). (In the end only the local administrator account could perform this) - I also had other problems/typo so everytime I tried, I did a full crawl. Then I noticed my search could not WORK AT ALL after fiddling with Sharepoint along the way. It showed all failures in the crawl log. With 103 errors related to 'The object was not found'. It will show my top level sites even, ie http://domainname - but actually when i clicked on it, I could access. IN the event viewer, it showed Event ID 14 error. Task Category 'Gatherer', Event ID 14, Source is from 'Sharepoint Search Server'. details
