I have created Content search web part with the help of MVP Benjamin Niaulin's En-Sharegate Blog and i displayed all the sub sites in my site collection, on my site's home page. But when I see this web part, am not able to see the logo of the sub sites. Its disappeared. Has anyone faced this issue? How to resolve this?


my editwebpart--managed property of cswp :


Update: After full crawl I came to know,managed & crawl properties were not generated in the search schema of my search service application.

The mapping of the properties in the Content Search Webpart(CSWP) are probaly wrong. The CSWP uses a display template to show the results in a specific way. You can choose which display template you want to use in the webpart properties.

You need to do three steps to set/check the right webpart properties.

  1. Re-select the current display template item. (It will refresh the settings if you re-select it)
  2. Check the box for changing the property mappings
  3. Set the Image-URL (Afbeeldings-URL in dutch) to SiteLogo. This managed property holds the url to the logo of your subwebs.

After you press 'Ok' the logo's of your subwebs should show in the CSWP. My example now looks like the image below. I have one subsite with a logo.

enter image description here

Keep in mind that you need to start a crawl of the Search Service Application, if you change a logo on a subsite, before the result will show in the CSWP.

  • thanks for the reply. I have already selected the correct dropdown item sitelogo as picture url managed property in my right pane[properties of cswp ].

  • Okay that is strange. Are you on a on-premises environment or online environment? Perhaps somehting went wrong with last search crawl? If you are on a on-premises environment you could try to start a new crawl and see if that helps.

  • Great! Something in the previous crawl probally went wrong! Sometime just re-crawling helps out! :)
