  • Hi keren,

    The tabs (Everything, People, Conversation...) in results page is "Search Navigation" web part in Enterprise Search center, but there is no "Configure Search Navigation" option available in Search Settings page in SharePoint Foundation search site collection, so it can't seems to use this search navigation web part in foundation.

    Since the search results page appends with querystring k(e.g. results.aspx?k=abc), results page will search quertystring value abc, so I thinks as a workaround it should be able to create several links/tabs in a Content Editor web part, then write Javascript code to get the current querystring value and append to each custom ink/tab url in click event, then when click each tab/link will switch to each results page with current query.

    Thanks

  • Hi keren,

    The default results.aspx in root path of the Basic Search Center, you can make a copy beside the original results page (or paste it in a library if needed) from SharePoint Designer 2013, and then set the Search box web part send queries to custom results page url.

    Thanks
