    Wondering if anyone has successfully used the search controls in version 2.7.1? When I add the form control, and the results control on a page, and do a search, there are no results.

    Hello Paul,

    Can you please just make sure you added the search module to your project, following these steps:

    1. Open the Default.aspx file of your project (\ProgramFiles\telerik\Sitefinity Sites\ YourProject );

    2. Find the part of the code shown below and add the text marked in red;

    <form id="mainForm"method="post" runat="server"style="margin:0px;">
    ,Controls/Search "
    DeleteControlsPaths="Controls" />

    3. Save the changes and open your project with Sitefinity;

    4. Add the search controls to your project. You may find more detailed informationon in our Administration Manual. The title of the topic is SampleControls. I am enclosing a file with printscreens.

    Note that the search module shipped with Sitefinity searches in content stored in the DB. For example, if you have r.a.d.editor in some cell, it will search its content too. It does not search in static text as for instance in user controls.

    If you are still experiencing problems with it, please send us your project database and search keywords, so we can investigate it locally and find the reason for this issue.

    Sincerely yours,
    the telerik team
