I'm stumped. Profile pictures are appearing correctly everywhere in SharePoint except People Search results. Here's how I tested:
- I did a full AD import.
- I edited my profile, including the PictureURL property (display name: Picture) as well as a couple other properties.
- I ran a full crawl of the MySites host.
- I performed a People Search for my last name. -- Verified that all of the edited properties appear correctly, except the PictureURL.
I verified that the XSL wasn't the problem by using the following nifty XSL trick to display the raw search result XML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <xmp><xsl:copy-of select="*"/></xmp> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>
Turns out the "pictureurl" tag in the search results has no value.
I checked the managed property settings for PictureURL, and it's using the out-of-the-box values:
What could be going on? Do I have to reset the managed property somehow? I've never delved deeply into SharePoint search, so I'm hesitant to start poking around with the managed properties without direction.
