search control

Hi,

Actually search control is in master page. It is working fine. In my situation, i want to add search control in blog module (blogviewcontrol.ascx page).

I added the control in that ascx control.  its coming but search is not working. when i click the search icon it is redirecting to the searchresult page just its redirect not search the content. its not passing search content as  a query string. just redirecting.

I added like this in ascx page,

<portal:SearchInput ID="SearchInput1" runat="server" LinkOnly="false" CssClass="searchtxtbox"></portal:SearchInput>

Re: search control

My advice is avoid forking the mojoPortal code and find a way to position the one in layout.master so it displays near the blog, you could use a different skin for the blog page if needed to make the search input more prominent on the blog.

Best,

Joe

Re: search control

Is there anyway to have a search control that is configured to search only one module - e.g. if I use a blog for a kind of knowledge base.  I'd like to have a specific search on the blog page that searches only that content. 

Related issue - if the above is possible, can there still be a site search that searches everything? This would mean two search controls in the layout.master

thanks

Re: search control

I will add a property on the SearchInput control for FeatureGuid. If specified then the feature guid will be passed as a query string parameter to filter results to only that feature, similar to the feature dropdown list on the search results page which filters results by feature.

This will be in the next release so you would be able to add more than one SearchInput to layout.master if you like and set a featureguid on it if desired. Probably what you would want to do is use a different skin on the blog page and set the search input there to have the guid, it would probably be confusing to users having more than one search input.

FeatureGuid="026cbead-2b80-4491-906d-b83e37179ccf" is what you would put on the control to search only the blog feature. I've just tested it here on my local machine.

Hope that helps,

Joe
