I currently have a Homepage and then 4 site collections within that. I have added a search bar for users to search for all documents. When I do the search 0 results come up and I can't figure this out. (scope in your query does not exist) Any solutions to this?

Thanks guys, Basically what is happening is I can search within the site collections, But I am trying to get the Homepage to search the entire site. Which is still not working. – Pureholland Aug 28 '12 at 13:49

When you enter your search criteria and return nothing, are you searching the correct scope from the drop-down

There are 4 different ones, on the drop down box for the homepage I am using the one that says ALL. (meaning all sites). This is the only thing on this site that I have not set up so Maybe something was not set up correctly. – Pureholland Aug 28 '12 at 16:54
