Working at an International company now, I found that I was often running into issues looking at the time stamps of documents.  Our collaboration server was in EST while I was in CST.  It could be confusing at times when you were working on...
That’s a mouth full.  I always suspected it was possible to use Visual Studio 2010 to package up my SharePoint web parts and other artifacts into a solution (.wsp file) and turn around and deploy that code into MOSS 2007.  Today I gave it a...
A while back, Kevin Williams pointed out to me that certain web sites could be searched in Google Chrome using the syntax <ur> query in the address bar. For example, once I have been to youtube.com, I can later type in youtube to initiate a search...
Last weekend, I gave my introduction to Enterprise Search talk where I showed the basics of using search.  One of the topics I covered is how to use federated search to display results from an external web site.  I’ve seen this topic come up...
I’ve been working with audiences again, so I recently wanted to set the target audience of a web part.  Sure anyone can set it in the UI, but I want to automate my deployment, so I wanted to do it programmatically using a feature receiver. ...

It’s a known fact that MOSS 2007 Service Pack 2 hates me .  Today, I was excited when I upgraded a server to SP2 and the configuration wizard didn’t fail.  I was even more excited to see that my SSP and Central Administration still worked after...

I have posted in the past about how to create a scope display group using the API, but I think new users to Enterprise Search could use some information on the basics of working with scope display groups.  The begin with we need to start off by defining...
I see this topic come up quite a bit.  You have a set of search results, and the user just wants to see the documents, not the folder that contains the documents.  Consider the following example, when I query for accounting documents below....
A while back, I wrote a post on how to customize the search results page .  I focused on some of the options with the CoreResultsWebPart (or CRWP as I call it), but today I thought of some more things to discuss in regards to the XSLT document that...
A colleague asked me today how he could formulate a search query by content type today.  I figured it was as simple as doing  a keyword query by content source , but wasn’t sure so I decided to go check.  I took a look and there is a ContentType...
I needed to do a quick proof of concept of displaying search results in Silverlight recently and it actually proved easier than I thought it was going to be.  I tried this once before in a beta version of Silverlight 2 and it was much more difficult...
I had a few questions about this recently, so I thought I would write a quick post on it.  It’s actually pretty simple to set up, but I know people like to see instructions with pictures.  It’s really not much different than setting up any other...
I had the opportunity to present a couple of talks on Enterprise Search this weekend at SharePoint Saturday Ozarks .  Kyle Kelin and I drove out there on Friday and we attended a great speakers dinner.  Mark Rackley did a great job on running...
I’m not privy to the NDA, so I got to look at some of the new SharePoint 2010 ( #sp2010 ) information for the first time with the Sneak Peak videos on the Microsoft site.  I’ll try not to just repeat information in the videos, but tell you what I...
I’ve seen quite a few posts in the forums about people wanting to not search the contents of documents.  These people for whatever reason were interested in just the title and path being searched.  Out of the box, this of course is not possible...
