Showing Search Scope on MySite's Default Page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Search Scope is not shown on MySite's default page, but it's shown on other pages.

    Is there any work around which will force default page to show Search Scope drop down on the top ribbon next to search box?

  • Actually I found the way of adding Search Scope drop down to My Sites.

    If you look to the Master page, you will see that search box is situated in DelegateControl. I identified that the problem may be connected with DelegateControl in Master page.  As I did my research regarding that subject, I found out that by default search scope box is hidden in master page through DelegateControl, so you need to create a custom delegate control which will show search scope.  

    Here are the steps:

    - Create a new project and add new feature there.

    - Add a new Empty Element in your project and customize it by adding a control and its properties. Here is a great resource on how to do it: http://www.fivenumber.com/understanding-sharepoint-delegate-control/

    After deploying your project, you will be able to see search scope drop down. Hope this will help.
