Although I have worked on modifying the CSWP and Display and Item templates, I am very new to SharePoint 2013 search configuration.
I have a requirement of setting up basic search for a portal migrated from MOSS to 2013. I do not need a dedicated Enterprise Search site collection but just a "Search this Site" Result Source at each subsite giving results for that subsite.
It should point to the OOB results page present at each subsite and show the results.
I have created the Content Source and have run full crawl once.
Do I need to create an Enterprise Search Site collection(which I do not want to)or I can link my content source directly without creating one.
I want to understand in detail what I am doing wrong and what I should be doing. How should I be linking my content source to the search application
