Search Center Tab Navigation Control

SharePoint 2007

The Search Center tab provides easy navigation for the Search Center. The Web Part that provides this functionality is the same one that is used for the Sites directory tab control.

The Search Center tab navigation menu is provided by two instances of the Search tab control; one for the query pages and one for the results pages. The data for the tab controls is stored in two Windows SharePoint Services lists within the Search Center. These lists are described in the following table.

Name Description URL

SearchCenter

Used for the query pages’ instance of the tab control. By default, this list includes the following pages:

  • default.aspx

  • advanced.aspx

  • people.aspx

/SearchCenter/Lists/SearchCenter/AllItems.aspx

SearchResults

Used for the results pages’ instance of the tab control. By default, this list includes the following pages:

  • results.aspx

  • peopleresults.aspx

/SearchCenter/Lists/SearchResults/AllItems.aspx

Remarks

If you have created custom search pages for the Search Center, you can add them to the Search tab control by adding them to the corresponding list.

For search results pages, you can customize the search query passed in the URL’s query string when a particular tab is selected.
