I just now found a thing , so would like to add to the above statements i have written:

i Clicked on site actions -> site settings -> search settings ( under site collection admin)

and then i selected the option use custom scopes and enterred /searchcenter/pages in it.

After tjhat i clicked on homepage to see the options available in the search box , and i was able to see the 4 options in it: ALL sites, This site , people and word documents.

But none of them is working.

Why is this happening This site search is also not happening , which was happeinign earlier nicely.

Are you getting an error If yes what

For contextual scope if you switch back to not use custom scopes does it work

Hi,

The problem is solved , i put /sites/moss/_layouts/osssearchresults.aspx in the Use custom scope option , and now i am able to see all the options in the search box and and search results are also coming. this is the same page where results are shown when we dont use any custom scope.

I guess problem is just because of, i didnt mentioned the correct path os any page on which results needs to come.

Actually , i need to achieve following search functionality:
Suppose i wrote "Peter" in the search , then if we search using any of the options : This site option or ALL Sites :

search result will contain:
a) all the documents that contain the word "peter"
b) all sites in which name vipin is there
c) shared documents
d) lists with different view
etc etc etc etc.........so many things


SO, its very confusing for the user.
SO, somebody please explain me
a) When we search , what all things appear in search results ( fo re.g documents , sites, lists , list with different views ,discussions , announments etc etc )
b) How can we filter the results of a search for e.g after selecting thsi site option , if i can give user an option to just search documents or sites ot lists , etc etc.

I need to find a solution to seggrate the search results by some categories i.e filtering on search.
Please share your experiences to tackle this type of search.

Regards,

Vipin

Wow, setting up search can be a character builder.

I have the standard search box on the main portal page and when I search I go to the OSSSEARCHRESULTS.ASPX page. On search box in the results page I'm only offered "This Site: <name of site>" on the drop down list. I would like to have the ability to search on people and and custom scopes as well.

I tried the steps listed in this thread but I must be missing something. How do I assign scopes to the drop down list on the osssearchresults.aspx page

Thanks for your help,

-Bob

This is what I have been able to do so far:

I have been able to set the "home page" /default.aspx search box to now show all the scopes in the drop down list. I accomlished this by going to:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\OSearchEnhancedFeature\SearchArea.xml

modifing the file to have these two lines:

DropDownMode = ShowDD
UseSiteDefaults = false

This, however, did not fix the osssearchresults.aspx page search box. I still only have "This site: <site name>" listed in the drop down box.

I have gone to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\osssearchresults.aspx and tried to modify this section:

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderID="PlaceHolderTitleBreadcrumb" runat="server">
<A name="mainContent"></A>
<TABLE width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td height="25px"><IMG SRC="/_layouts/images/blank.gif" width=1 height=1 alt=""></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<SPSWCTongue TiedearchBoxEx id="SearchBox" runat="server"
GoImageUrl="/_layouts/images/gosearch.gif"
GoImageUrlRTL="/_layouts/images/gosearch.gif"
DropdownModeEx=ShowDD_DefaultURL
ScopeDisplayGroupName = ""
FrameType="None"
ShouldTakeFocusIfEmpty=true />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td height="10" colspan="8"><IMG SRC="/_layouts/images/blank.gif" width=1 height=1 alt=""></td>
</tr>
</TABLE>

But... Everytime I modify anthing in this file, so an IIS reset, and go to the page, the page is broken and I have to restore the file to get it to work again. I'm not sure if this has something to do with Sharepoint Designer, so I will try in "notepad", but I'm not to confident.

anyone have ideas

Thanks again,

No freak'n way... Got it!

I used notepad to make the modification in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\osssearchresults.aspx

My change was this: ( In Red)

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderID="PlaceHolderTitleBreadcrumb" runat="server">
<A name="mainContent"></A>
<TABLE width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td height="25px"><IMG SRC="/_layouts/images/blank.gif" width=1 height=1 alt=""></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<SPSWCearchBoxEx id="SearchBox" runat="server"
GoImageUrl="/_layouts/images/gosearch.gif"
GoImageUrlRTL="/_layouts/images/gosearch.gif"
DropdownModeEx=ShowDD_DefaultURL
ScopeDisplayGroupName = "Search DropDown"
FrameType="None"
ShouldTakeFocusIfEmpty=true />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td height="10" colspan="8"><IMG SRC="/_layouts/images/blank.gif" width=1 height=1 alt=""></td>
</tr>
</TABLE>

That was easy.. NOT

This is exactly what I've been trying to do and I had the first, but not the second part of modifying the OSSSearchResults.apsx page.

In my configuration I had one more line added to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server

Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\OSearchEnhancedFeature\SearchArea.xml

ScopeDisplayGroupName=AllScopes

This was a display group I created.

After I added the following to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server

Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\osssearchresults.aspx

ScopeDisplayGroupName = "AllScopes"

Everything worked. Thanks again for your post...

One more question, has anyone tried the same thing with Advanced Search

I have a specific problem when changing the searcharea.xml

In my configuration I use an English rootwebsite and a mix of English and Dutch subsites. The changes in the searcharea.xml (enabling scopes from the SSP) are visible in the English sites, but not the Dutch ones.

Any ideas on this

Andries
