Defaulting Search to "This Site"

  Asked By: Ojas    Date: Aug 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1605

Does anyone know if it is possible to default to search dropdown box to
'This Site' rather than 'All Sites'. It doesn't appear in the search
scopes list anywhere.

I am also looking for a way of doing so but suspect that this is not
possible out of the box  and without some degree of development work. I
do agree it is a very reasonable enhancement to allow the default  to be
set to "This Site" or "This List".

We managed to set the default search  scope in the drop-down in our
system to the WSS "contextual" scope (This Site or This List). My
memory is it was done by a configuration on the drop down search
control in the master page. However, I can't find any reference
material to confirm.
