Advanced Search Web Part in 2010 does not seem to handle scopes properly

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have configured a page in SP2010 with an advanced scope web part.

I have enabled the scope picker from the "advanced search" scope group and adding a new scope to that group in the site collection settings.

The advanced search web part is targetted to a new results page containing the core results web part.

When I perform a search for string test using one of the scopes that I have selected the results page is called as follows.


No results are rendered.

What I don't quite understand is I thought that the querystring should actually be.


Which when entered manually works.

So it sort of seems that the advanced search web part is rendering the wrong querystring!!

The search centre is enterprise template (not fast) and sharepoint server search is configured not fast 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.

Pass the server variable to search core result web part


I'd like to custom the search core result web part to filter results based on the log on user name.

It can easily be done in Dataview web part.

However the search core web part doesn't accept "<parameterbining>" to pass in the server variable [logon_user]. I can't figure out how to use <xsl:param> to get this server variable either.


Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
