After calling shutdown() it stops calling the createaccessor() with new URL. I want to create a hierarchical indexing but I am not gatherer is not suporting this. The same piece of code is working fine in MOSS 2007, I am facing this issue in MOSS 2010 only. Is there anything changed in MOSS 2010 which is creating this issue?

Apply custom.master to "Site Settings" page?

  

I'm using a custom.master page, which is applied to almost all pages available to READ users.

However, I'd like to apply it to the Search, Site Settings, and View All Site Content pages.

I'm not sure where this would be applied.

Guidance much appreciated. Thanks!


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?

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.

Regards,

Ravi

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 12.0.0.6421).  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. We are going into production but I still cannot figure out how to search against my custom managed properties that are of Type DateTime.  If I cannot get this to work, it is a showstopper. I've tried numerous variations on the SQL Syntax and cannot get it to work.  I know the error is in the date portion of the WHERE clause since I can remove it and searches work fine. Here is a working query: SELECT Size, Rank, Path, Title, Description, Write, RequestSubmittedDate, DocumentType, RequestPromisedDate, ProblemDescription, DatePublished, RequestOwner, RequestingDepartment, DocumentAuthor, ProjectNumber, ProjectDescription, RequestStatus FROM scope() WHERE CONTAINS ('"nmr"') ORDER BY "Rank" DESC yet if I try to use a date literal in the WHERE clause as in the following query modification, I get the "malformed"

Change SSP and Search database names

  
While creating SSP, besides the Admin site and MySite content databases, two more databases get created. They are usually named MySSP_DB and MySSP_Search_DB. If later we have a need to change these database names, what is the procedure? Thanks

BCS Custom Search Connector Concurrency

  
I wrote a custom search connector (.NET assembly) so that external ECM repositories can be indexed using either search service application (sharepoint or FAST).  However, the indexer process only calls my code one request at a time which isn't going to be fast enough in most cases.  I tried setting up a crawl impact rule, but still only a single request at a time.  If I change the impact rule to slow the crawl down, it works.  If I set the impact rule to handle 8 concurrent requests, it ignores it. Anybody have an idea on how I can get it to call my connector concurrently?Dan Hunsinger

Search - How to remove a meta tag ... / custom column is not showing up in Crawled Properties after

  
Hi I got the following warning after I crawled a site. Info out of Crawl Log: "The content for this address was excluded by the crawler because this item was marked with a no-index meta-tag. To index this item, remove the meta-tag and recrawl." Sound easy but I don't no where I could do it. The other problem is that I try to get a custom column from a custom list showing up in the crawle properties. I am using also a custom scope with the behavior "INCLUDE" ... In MOSS 2007 it was a lot simpler ;-) Thanks Regards MIA    

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!

Trying to build a custom application to crawl SharePoint Search

  
Hello,      I have been tasked with building a custom application to develop a report dynamically based upon a search ran in a SharePoint site using user-defined keywords. What I need the application to do is this: 1.) Access the results of a search, and do a full fidelity save of each item. 2.)  If the item returned is a document in a library and it has other versions associated with it, access the meta-data of those other versions and group those results with the item found in the search. 3.) Store the results in XML (probably the easiest), and build a custom display for reporting purposes. If anyone has any advice on how I can accomplish this, I would be very grateful, Thanks!

Change Regional Settings

  
I need to change regional settings on SharePoint so that the date format is not mm/dd/yyyy but dd/mm/yyyy.I have seen that this can take place if i go to Home site->Site Settings->Regional Settings and change the locale from there. All are perfect up to here. Since i need this change to take effect on subsites as well I check the "All sub-sites inherit these Regional Settings". After Pressing ok, i get an error message "Please turn off all indexed columns before changing the collation of this site. One or more list or library contains a column that has been marked for indexing. ..."How can i stop this indexing temporary? i tried to stop the indexing service from service administration but this didn't work.After applying this change, i hope my dates will not be lost, correct (this is the production server.....)? Will i have any problem with the search? Do i need further actions?a.rongas

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.

Custom advanced search form

  
Hi all, I've got some requirement which related with the advanced search form. I'll need to make a tree view which listed the site subsites and document library inside each site.
