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

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


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 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 Search to Only Include List Items


Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone new a way to only include list items when searching. Currently search returns list items and lists that contain a keyword.

I know i will have to create a custom scope but not much after that.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

How to show all attachments in Allitems.aspx in the custom list?



I am very new to sharepoint and I was wondering if you could help me out with something:

I am creating a sharepoint list where I want to add a few attachments to each row, and then have the attached documents displayed in the public default view as links to the documents, instead of just the paperclip icon.

I've tried to search on how to do this, but I haven't really found anything that explains how to do this in SharePoint 2010 ... Can somebody give me a pointer?

Display single item from List using XSLT and show total count of all items in list


I have a simple SharePoint 2010 list named "Tips". Each item consists of a Title and Description. I want to display a single item at a time in a sidebar on my site with arrows to advance to the next or previous item in the list. I've been able to accomplish this pretty easily using OOTB SharePoint XSLT list view web part settings and AJAX. However, when I tell the web part to only display 1 item at a time the pager always says it's showing item "1 of 1" or "2 of 2". It won't show the total number of items from the list. I'd like it to show something like item "1 of 25", etc. How do I get it to display the total count of items from the list?  I've looked at possibly using aggregation attributes on a FieldRef but I've not been able to get anything to work. I'm not even sure that's the right place to be looking. I'm needing to accomplish this without writing a custom web part. 


Moss Simple Search not searching new items in list until keyword is "propertyName:Keyword" i.e Custo



Problem : Simple search not showing the new items created in list. It shows the new items if searched with keyword as  "propertyName:Keyword" i.e CustomeName:John

There is a metadata property "CustomerName", which is mapped to a custom column(Customer Name) in a sharepoint list as ows_CustomerName(Text). Also there is a scope(Customers) created which has folder set to URL of the sharepoint site containing this list.

The items are indexed for sure as they are searchable if simple search keyword is  "propertyName:Keyword" i.e CustomeName:"John Smith" . But not searchable if the keyword is John Smith

Is there anything missing??
