Searching subsites

  Asked By: Lakeisha    Date: Sep 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 876

we have installed WSS to create a main site with 17 subsites..

Can we use the search to:

1. Search from the Parent site down into all subsites
2. Search from a Subsite across all subsites
3. Search from a subsite upwards to the parent site
4. If a user does not have permission to a subsite, will the search
not return any documents that are in the restricted site?

any ideas / help on the above would be great

The search  included with WSS will only search within the current site. I seem
to remember talk of a third party tool on this list a while back, or you can
upgrade to SPS which includes search that does everything you list (and more).

Both CorasWorks and Advis have web parts that do searching  across all subsites.
The do not search  across multiple site  collections.
