missing web parts

May 22, 2009 at 9:17 AM

Hi,

When installing faceted search 2.5 on a test environment (all SP services on one box) the web parts have not appeared in the web part gallery! i've run iisreset, uninstalled, reinstalled etc. but still no joy

Any ideas out there on this one?

Many thanks

What's the feature state in Site Collection features? Try de-activate an activate it. Check for any errors in event log.

thanks for the reply, feature is activated on the site collection just fine, no event log errors just no web parts!?!

Check your WP gallery on the site collection where the feature is activated.  If there are no SearchFacets web parts then click "New" and search on that page for the string "Facets" (use normal text search).  You should see the WP assembly there.  If not then check your GAC to ensure that the assemblies have been correctly installed.

If none of these work then you should reinstall.  You could try dropping the assembly into the bin directory, then manually populating the WP gallery as above, but then you will not have any default properties (specifically SelectColumns populated).  I suggest reinstall.

Thanks,
