I implemented search core result component in my page.

My username is: "jack.antoun" on the servername "webserver"

When I put in the search box “jack" for example, the search results returns: "domain\username" which is "webserver\jack.antoun" in the description text. (Please note that I already remove author, date, and size)

How to remove the "domain\username" from being displayed in search results description ?

Screeshot is under the following link:
Search result display

Thanks in advance.

  • Thanks for adding more information. I would recommend adding a screenshot or include what specifically you are editing (page, web part, etc).

You have to customize the XSLT of SearchCore Web Part. To do that I suggest you to download the result of your search as a XML file and use it on Visual Studio with the standard XSLT and start to modify it step-by-step.
