I am working on a custom SharePoint 2010 solution, and we have an interesting problem.
Is it possible to customize the Delegate Control (using the SmallSearchInputBox) to default to a scope (let's use "All Sites" in this case) AND set the custom search result page to one of our custom pages?
Keep in mind that we do not want contextual search at any point, but we do want to always use the given scope, regardless of where the user searches from.
We have investigated doing this through the Site Collection Search settings, to no avail, unless there is some setting that we are missing.
It feels like a normal request, but maybe I'm just missing something.
