Default number of search conditions

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Does anyone know if you can increase the number of search conditions in SharePoint from the default 5 to something more, 10 perhaps?  and if so, can this be done in SP2007 as well SP2010.

Thanks in advance...

IIS - sharepoint/default website port number confusion



I have MOSS 2007 installed with IIS V7.

My default web site port is 80. When I created a new web application for my main sharepoint portal I also set it to 80. So obviously now the default web site port shows as stopped in IIS and it won't start.

What are the best practices. Should I change the port number for my portal to something else? I mean is it even a good idea to have sharepoint on port 80? If so, how do I go about changing the port number for my portal site?

any help appreciated.

Searching for custom properties in a default search

Hi all, I have added some custom properties in to Manage User Properties in my User Profile Service Application. The issue I'm having is that I'm unable to obtain search results from these properties. For example, if in the Enterprise Search / People tab I enter "Dave" and click search, then I'll be presented with results of people who's name matches "Dave". If I enter "Information Technology" then I'll get a list of all users who's department is "Information Technology". So far we're okay! But let's go back to the custom property. Let's say it's called "Clients" and it is for storing client names against the staff profiles. If I search for "Microsoft" and a user has Microsoft in their client property then no results are found. I've created the managed properties in the Metadata Property Mappings of my search service application, done full crawls but nothing. If I search for "clients:microsoft" then I get results. So the question is how do I or is it even possible to get custom metadata properties to show up in a default search? Thanks!

Why is word stemming not enabled by default in SharePoint Search?


I am just wondering why it is not enabled by default in SharePoint while most popular web search engines enabled it by default.

For example, for plural, if you google "Hiker", results will contain "Hikers" and "Hiker".

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.

Search Services Application error. Can I restore to default? Or other ideas?



I posted an question but I think I may have put it in the wrong forum. 

When trying to create a new Search Services Application (after deleting old one) I get the following error:

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: Some or all identity references could not be translated.

This is the only application that gives me an error.

Search Scope Default to "this site"


I am trying to limit the search on a SharePoint site to each individual site collection..  These sites are all on the same server.  I have found a way to do this by following the article below –



 I change the dropdownmode on the masterpage to DropDownMode = "ShowDD_DefaultContextual"  this works for all my publishing sites.

Search Scope - Default to "This Site"

I have created a root level site collection via MOSS.  I have then added a site directory with both WSS and MOSS sites created underneath the site directory.  The default search for all of these sites is "All Sites".  Is there any way to make the default search for the team sites under the site directory "This Site"?

The issue is when users search for a topic using the "All Sites" scope, the results page is at the root level and it takes them out of their team site.  They then have to navigate back to the team site. 

I am assuming that I am creating a WSS site when I use the "Team Site" template under "Create SIte" in the site collection page.  Is this correct?

Sharepoint default search not working for a site

Hello All,

I am facing an issue in the search of a sharepoint 2007 site whose zone is Internet.
The default sharepoint search is not working. When i crawl the content source I get a warning which says "The specified address was excluded from the index. The crawl rules may have to be modified to include this address. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)".

Please anyone let me know how to do this. This is on our production server.

I appreciate all responses.

Thank You,

how to set the default search scope for a basic search center ?


Hi there,

is it possible to set the default search scope to be used in a basic search center ? I want to have specific search centers for sitecollections so that they only query their own content by default first.

Thanks for your help.


How to change default category for the Text Box Property NUMBER across multiple textboxes


I'm using SSRS R8 and have several reports with numerous NUMERIC textboxes.  The default NUMBER category that SSRS applies is "Default", which applies no formating to the number values shown in the textbox.  When the report executes, it displays these values with 4 decimal places (e.g. 123.1234).  The customer requires 2 decimal places (e.g. 123.12). 

This can be easily fixed by changing the category for the NUMBER Text Box Property from "Default" to "Number", with "Decimal Places" set to 2.

The trouble with doing it this way is that each report has over a hundred such textboxes (there are 15 such reports), and to change each textbox individually would be timeconsuming and error prone.  The intuitive way to do this would be to select multiple textboxes that I want to set the NUMBER category for, right click, select Text Box Properties, and set the NUMBER category accordingly.  However when I right click the multi-selected text boxes, I see the Text Box Properties option greyed out.

Is there a different way to do this?

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.
