When I add the taxonomy refinement panel to the search result page I read in the properties that 'This Web Part requires that Managed Navigation is used for either Global or Current navigation.'

Does this mean that if I have a global navigation done classically, without managed metadata, this refinement panel will never work?

    Why are you not using the "Refinement Web Part" that is designed for the search result page? – Robert Lindgren Feb 8 '17 at 8:18
  • because I thought that the taxonomy refiner was more specific. I added TAGS to the existing refiners and it does find tags, but not the ones belonging to the 'countries' term set I have created. It seems to pick up only the keywords inserted in the 'Enterprise metadata and keyword settings'. Is there a reason why it is not picking up other term sets in the enterprise metadata? – susan Feb 8 '17 at 9:14
  • You need to add that field as refiner, see here: blogs.technet.microsoft.com/tothesharepoint/2013/11/10/… – Robert Lindgren Feb 8 '17 at 14:03
