Related links scope settings


  • Can anyone point me to references on using the "Related links scope settings"
    that can be set on each site, under site settings? I cannot find useful information anywhere. Try
    googling it and hardly anything comes up.

    Specifically I am trying to take two related sites, that are different site
    collections, in different web applications and content DB's and search only
    those two site collections from anywhere within those sites. I don't want to
    use "All Sites" because it will return info I am not looking for.

    Is "Related Link Scope Settings" what I should be using? I can't get it to
    work, even after re-indexing. I just need a guide on this setting. Thanks.

  • My first thought would be to create a scope from central admin that includes the two sites.  I would configure it similar to how I described it here but instead of a document library, specify the site itself.

  • Thanks for taking the time to reply. 


    Search scopes are being used in our environment and are fairly straightforward and well documented.  They work very well. 


    However, I am trying to achieve this without having to set up a new scope and without having to involve a central administrator (me), so that site collection admins could potentially do this for their sites.


    I am also searching for any documentation on the "Related link scope settings". 


    Those two items are the questions at hand.
