Problem: I've got a site with 15 subsites, each which in turn has many pages. I want to use a content search web part to query all sub sites, and display each sub site as a heading, with the three most visited pages linked in bullet points under each heading. I want to make this into a template that can be applied to around 50 other sites. Each other site has different content, but I want the same logic applied - so that's why I want to use content search rather than building the content statically. In essence, what I am looking to build is a type of navigation built with the CSWP.
Question: I am not super adept at SP technically speaking, so sorry if my questions are a bit stupid. but I've got people who could help me out if I could formulate the problem a little better, and get a better understanding of which nuts and bolts that needs to be taken into consideration.
- First of all, is the Content Search Web Part suitable for this task?
- Is it possible to query the sub sites and the pages belonging to each sub site, group the results by sub site and order the results by page views?
- Another problem is that it needs to look nice enough. Could the results be shown in a table with three columns, five sub sites in each column?
