    Helloo,
            We need to have site search functionality in our project.
    This will be a global search.
    We tried this functionality by using sitefinity Search-Widget.
    - Created one search index(selected all the options n Specified Published Pages)
    - Created one page containing search box control and specified the above Created index name and search result page for this.
    - On Search Result Page dragged SearchResult Control

    But its not displaying Proper result ...

    Can u pls Explain how Exactly it works Step by Step ...

    Thanks ... :)

    2) Added Search Widget to Pages.

    Dear Anu

    You are running 4.0. There has been a 4.1 release as well as a 4.1 SP1.

    The search was fixed as far as I know in the SP1 release 4.1.1395

    So updating to the lates version should fix that problem

    BUT - CAUTION

    Have read through some threads the upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1 was not painless for many. So I would strongly advice you to contact support via support ticket first!!

    Tell them what you have installed, maybe custom modules and whatever to find out if a upgrad to the lates version should run for you without problems.

    AGAIN - I would advice to contact support prior to updating to 4.1 (maybe the issues other had are resolved in the 4.1.1395 release - I am simply not sure about it.

    ------------
    Markus

    PS: Sooner or later you will want/have to update anyhow. So it might as well be now.

    Hi Anu,

    You have a custom control that uses session, PageNode or SiteMap objects and this is from where the error comes from. Please check your custom controls.
