    Umbraco Search Video !!!

    Hi,

    I want to implement search in Umbraco. I found videos on http://umbraco.org/help-and-support/video-tutorials/developing-with-umbraco/examine/adding-a-search-to-your-website but its only for 2 minutes. Please provide me whole video how to implement search in umbraco. Replies will be highly appreciated.

     

    Regards,

    Solanki

    If you just want to have some "simple" search on your page, I'd take a look at Doug's great package called XSLT Search. It's very easy to implement and it works like a charm. When I wrote "simple" in the beginning, it's acually not quite true, because the XSLT search can be customized quite a lot.

    It's been a while since I implemented this one myself, but as far as i remember you have to insert the search form in one of your templates or macros, and then link that form to the search.aspx-page with a param called q or search or something like that. The search.aspx page will then grab that searchquery from the URL, and render the searchresult for you. You have to specify some different stuff before you are on the roll, but I'd suggest that you take a look at the documentation. You can get it from the projectpage on this site that I linked to before.

    Yes its working. The link you provided, there is one PDF for documentation. I just followed it. You made my day.

    Do you know if i want to develope search using Microsoft search express instead of XSLT Search?

     

    Thanks.

    Great to hear that it worked out Solanki!

    Since Doug made such fine documentation, it's pretty easy to implement and that package rocks.

    I'm sorry but I haven't tried using Microsoft Search Express so I can't help you a lot with that. What advantage does it have compared to the XSLT Search and some of the other opportunities like Google search? Does it work the same way as Google Search, but just through Bing instead of Google or ?

    Ohh that's okay Solanki. I think that is one of the most grateful responses I've seen in here. I'm glad you had your problem solved.

    If you can mark one of the answers as the solution, other users can see that this post is not an open issue anymore :)

    Have a nice day...

    You know, if you pay the 19 euros you can watch the whole video, and a lot more videos in fact. It's a very worthwhile investment if you're getting started with Umbraco :)

    The advantage using MS Search Server (Express) over XSLTsearch is when your site contains information not originating from umbraco or if you need to index pdf's, docx, pptx etc.. you could do the last part with with Examine too, but that would index all of the media library and not only the documents in use. And it's also great for controlling and manipulating your index / searches.

    For smaller/"cleaner" projetcs I would recommend XSLTsearch though. I myself use all three (xsltSearch, Examine and MS Search Server Express)

    Examples:

    http://blackpelican.dk/, http://avidenz.dk/ - xsltSearch
    http://senmatic.com/, http://museum.odense.dk/ - MS Search Server Express
    Examine (yet not public)
