Multiple Search Indexes Single Sitefinity Instance
I have a search index set up to use for a site-wide search on my current Sitefinity install that works just fine. Now I want to add a separate search index that only searches my blog. I have the index set up, but how do I add a search control that uses it? Is it even possible to use multiple search indexes on a Sitefinity instances without having to write a custom control?
You should create a separate search index and configure SearchBox control to use it. When you open SerchBox control for editing there is a drop down from where you can choose an index catalog.
