Linking author information

  Asked By: Tami    Date: May 17    Category: MOSS    Views: 990

Is it possable to change it so If I do a Search in MOSS 2007 and click
on the author of the document instead of taking you to information
about the author saved at the site collection level it takes you to the
same page you would get if you did a search for that person?

You would have to modify the Core Results web part. Where it outputs the author
you will need to surround it with an anchor tag and have it link back to the
page page with a new query.

So in your search  results you would have the xsl output something like <a
href="results.aspx?k=author:adam">Adam</a>. This would search any author  that
has adam in it. If you just wanted to do a people search a quick thought might
be to have the link send it them to something like:

Hope these general thoughts will help you get started.
