    I am working with four websites that all use Sitefinity 3.6.  They are all configured as separate applications, but they use the same CMS database.  Everything works fine with one exception: Site search (using a PageIndex) returns results from all four sites.  Is it possible to easily configure this so that it will only return pages that are on the current site?  I do not have the option of creating sub-nodes for each because they are a re-skin of existing sites with existing users and the directory tree needs to remain constant.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Chris Jensen,

    You can modify the seach provider web.config declaration and especially -  applicationName attribute. By default the applcation name value is "/"


    <search defaultProvider="Search">
            <add name="Search" applicationName="/WebsiteOne" type="Telerik.Search.Data.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Search.Data" connectionStringName="DefaultConnection"

    You need to do the same for each website that you do not want to share the index results. After you have made some changes to the provider declaration you need to reindex the website.

    All the best,
