SharePoint Sunday: A Slow Week

January 25, 2010

The goslings and I were surprised at the lack of search related information from Microsoft and its certified developers in the last seven days.

We did come across one write up in Get the Point, “SharePoint Server 2010 Inside Scoop: Where’s the Site Search Drop Down Menu?” We have to confess that we have never looked for the site search drop down menu, and the tip may be quite helpful to some.

The drop down menu is gone but it can be restored. Here’s the method:

“…Click Site Actions, Site Settings. Under Site Collection Administration, choose Site Settings.

Add the dropdown to the search box

To return to the SharePoint Server 2007 experience, under Site Search Dropdown Mode, choose Show and default to contextual scope.”

A freebie. I will report this unpleasant situation to the Department of Navy, which specializes in finding underwater, concealed objects.
