I have a customized search web-part developed for SP2010 wich according to the source code is using Scopes in its query-string. The whole SP environment is now migrated to SP2013, and Scopes are no longer af part of 2010. Because of this change, the web-part does not longer display any search results.
Which solution is needed here? My tought was to create result sources in 2013, containing all the appropriate site-collections, and then change the source-code, the query string til hit the result source instead of the scope. Is this the correct way to do it?
So this is how the web-part looks like.
- The text field is a regulra search field
- Zip code is a managed property
- Town is a managed property
- And there are some more managed properties
The query string in the url-field ends with "...myPageWithWebPart.aspx?k=sharepoint?s=myScope"
So the data is not returned because the query-string is set to look after scope with name MyScope. So any idea how to change this to be working with 2013.
