I have created a custom search results page with a refinement panel webpart. The webpart picks up our managed metadata and allows users to refine their results based on the metadata selected. However, the refinement panel doesn't seem to recognize the hierarchical structure of the metadata.
For instance, we have the following hierarchy: Places > Parks > National Parks. All national parks are parks and all parks are places. When using the refinement webpart, users see:
- Any Category
- Places:Parks:National Parks
- Places:Parks:City Parks
If they click on Places, anything marked as parks, national parks, or city parks is excluded.
The behavior I want to see is by selecting Places, anything marked as parks, national parks or city parks would be displayed (along with many other places.) If the user instead clicked on parks, anything marked as parks, national parks or city parks would be displayed.
