I have created a custom search page with a core search web part. It builds a query string in URL to populate the search results. k=[keyword] is the first, then to narrow the search to specific business area we use u=https://domain/Business/Lists/TheList. This works well, but we need to filter the searches by the lists column.
So we may have a list that is populated with articles for numerous business areas, so we need to filter the results to a specific business area. Is there any way to do this through the URL?
So...https://domain/search.aspx?k=test&u=https://domain/Business/List&column name:column value?
