One of our departments has a library that contains 150,000 documents, rendering the main library view pretty useless. So I've created a search page for users to find documents, but there's no way to access menu items from the search results page. We need to be able to modify properties, delete documents (most important), and see version history as well. Anyone know how to get these options to show in the search results page?
I would suggest a couple things. First create better views. Group by metadata or use metadata navigation.
If you are using SharePoint 2013 the Library Search feature is what you are looking for. (Not available in 2010.)
If you still need a Search Results page to do what you want then you will have to create a new Display Template (in 2013) or modify the XSL of the search result (in 2010). Then you just add the links to the actions you seek.
