  • Blog Post: Live Search Web Part, Part 2

    I realized that it may not be immediately obvious to everybody how you can customize the MOSS Search Center to add the Live Search Web Part I blogged about. It is really very simple. The Theory: all you need to do is to create new "Live" tabs on the Search Center (one for Search and one for Results...
  • Blog Post: Live Search Web Part

    I have pre-configured a Web Part for MOSS that you can just drop on to a Search Center results page. It will run the current query on Live Search and display the results.

  • Blog Post: Programmatically adding Web Parts to a page

    I have recently had to come up with a way to programmatically add a Web Part to a large number of existing publishing pages. It took me a little while to find the exact way to do it, so I thought I would post the source code here. Attached is the C# code that will iterate over a bunch of pages in...
