Limit Sharepoint Search Results by Content Type RRS feed

  • Question

  • There has to be a simple way to do this...

    I want to set up a search site to return only a specific content type.  Content type is a field (column) so essentially I want to filter by that column.

    In this case I only want to see document sets in my results - this is easy to filter with the views, is there a way to filter the results the same way?

  • Just give the following in a SharePointsearch box

    ContentType:"CTYPE_NAME" SEARCH_QUERY

    Replace the CTYPE_NAME with your own content type.
