Advanced People Search

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
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"

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!

People Search Results - Where do property/headings in the core results web part come from?

Hi there, I'm hoping this will be a nice simple thing to fix! We're running SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, using the Enterprise Search. In my User Profiles Service Application, I changed the display name of one of the User Properties. It it the SPS-Responsibility property. The out of the box display name is Ask Me About. The only issue is that in the people search results, the SPS-Responsibilty display name still shows as Ask Me About, not my new display name. This link shows this in a screenshot  I've tried various things such as resetting the index, running full crawls again etc. Could anyone let me know where this text is coming from? Thanks! Al

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.

People search in MOSS 2007




I don’t know much about the search settings in SharePoint. I have a requirement like I want to enable the people search for one of the SharePoint site which was created by someone else.


I know that people search will be activated by default if we choose the site template as collaboration portal, but in this case I am not sure about the template they used to create. By the way is there any way to find out which site template they used to create the site; that is apart.


What are the settings required to enable the people search in MOSS 2007.
