  • How to change SharePoint search page URL? George2

    I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. I am using publishing portal template.

    By default, the search page is using results.aspx as the search result page. I want to change results.aspx to another page (my custom search page to show results, e.g. customsearchresults.aspx), how do I change it?

  • I think i already tried to answered that question at the end of your other recent questions Permission issue when editing a page using SharePoint Designer

  • Try the following:

    1. Edit the page
    2. Find the web part that contains where to enter the search term, which should be called something like "Search Box"
    3. Modify the settings on that web part and look for something like "Target search results page URL"
    4. Change the value from results.aspx to your custom results page
    5. Click OK and save, etc...

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and I am using publishing portal template. I am using SharePoint Designer 2007 to design pages. When I open the default.aspx under Pages sub-folder of a site, there are two options: Edit in Browser and Edit Page Layout. I want to know what are the differences between Edit in Browser and Edit Page Layout -- especially what is the function of Edit Page Layout, because when I select Edit Page Layout, WelcomeSplash.aspx opens in SharePoint Designer, other than default.aspx itself (very confused). thanks
