Basic Search – Display Different Columns

Basic Search – Display Different Columns header image

So another minor post about search. Last post I explained the use of metadata property mappings, and their strength allowing you to show more information without a lot of changes. However I forgot to mention the fact that u can actually show them pretty easy in your existing search results.

Assuming you created your Metadata properties you can go to your search page, the XSLT of your results webpart to:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
  <xmp><xsl:copy-of select="*"/></xmp>
