Create Facted Search on Custom Search Page

Jun 18, 2009 at 8:07 AM

Hi,

i must create a Custom Search Page. I have tried some poducts. Now i'am testing the Sharepoint Search. Unfortunly :-) on my custompage i must create a facet search. So i take a look on your sourcecode. Have i seen right that you make 2 queries. 1 to bring up the results and one to bring up facets? Is this right or i missunderstood the code? if you make only 1 query how you integrate the facets in the search result?

Thanks for help.

Faceted Search run 2 queries if there is more than 500 results to extract facets from. 1st query is realtime, 2nd query is async. Hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your response.

So let me recapitulate so i see if i have understood:

  • User search "mytext" and would have a list of the first 10 items (paging)
  • System runs a query the returns first 10 relevant results.
  • System runs a query that returns all items but only this properties that are necessary for the facet result.
  • System group and count facets and creates the navigation structure.

Is this right?
As you know is there a posibillity to retrive relevant results and all possible facets at one time?
Thanks
