so here is my question: I am currently working on a project, which was previously handled by multple different firms. So the code is kinda messy.
In order to rank a people-search-result I've tried the following:
I created a custom ranking model.
After that I derived from Core Results Webpart and overridden the OnItit()-Method in order to change the DefaultRankingModelID-Property. -> doesn't work..
In The ResultsPage-Module, where my custom ResultsWebPart is instanciated, I changed the "DefaultRankingModelID"-Property right the same way.
After that I've added the "&rm1="-Tag to the search query.
Nothing is working at all. It just ignores whatever I've tried and still sorts the result by "Employee-ID". Strangely I am able to sort the Results. But I need to rank them by proximity, then by name, and so on...
Hope you got the idea... Help would be really appreciated! I smashed my head at the wall like a thousand times!
