  • Are you sure that you go to "Search settings" under site collection administrator features? – Christoffer Sep 25 '14 at 7:48

  • And you are sure that you have configured it correctly? At the search center Url, did you type the adress to your search site collection followed by "/pages" ? – Christoffer Sep 25 '14 at 7:58
  • my root site is mycompany.net and my search site collection is mycompany.net/intranet . And I type "mycompany.net"/intranet in search center Url. – user3622351 Sep 25 '14 at 8:05
  • Are you using managed paths? What is the internal url for the search site collection? (sites/search)? – Christoffer Sep 25 '14 at 8:10

Make sure that you type correct URLs in the search settings. The search center url must be followed by /pages so an example would be http://server/sites/search/pages.

The same goes out to the setting to send a users query to a custom result page. Then /pages/results.aspx" must be added to the rest of the URL, like this example: http://server/sites/search/pages/results.aspx

In your scenario it would be http://mycompany.net/intranet/pages and http://mycompany.net/intranet/pages/results.aspx.
