I have a main intranet site:
I have a subsite that's the search portal for the entire company:
On the main site, I've set up a webpart that points to the results page of the search site, so that there's a box people can see when they first hit the main page. The Target Search Results Page URL I've set to
/search/Pages/results.aspx. When I enter a search term (we'll use
Ryan as an example), it takes me to the results page on the search site just as I expect, but there are no results.
Looking at the url, you would expect the results page to be:
The extra text in the URL is the site that it came from, and is breaking the URL and thus the results page, causing no results to be returned. If I remove that text, it works fine.
What is the correct way to set up a search box on one site that displays the results of another site?
