Enterprise Search Center - Rating Stars in Search Results

    Question

  • I am trying to add rating stars to the search results in my Enterprise Search Center site according to the instructions found on the following sites:

    MSDN | Corey Roth - MVP's Blog | Todd's Blog

    The instructions were simple enough to follow, but when I search I cannot get the stars to appear. I have tried a number of different things at this point but I am not aware of any XSL debugger, so I have been at a loss. I know the ratings have been crawled because I was able to successfully search for items with specific ratings.

    Anybody else have this problem (and hopefully a solution)?

    Thanks,

    • Matt

    Edit (3/13/2012):

    I also removed the template for the rating stars and replaced it with a simple xsl tag to get the rating value but that is not showing up either.

  • Try to remove the spaces between the fetched properties, i faced the problems in the below case and verify the custom managed property creation steps and give the full crawl if it is possible

    ex: (<Column Name="Rating"/><Column Name="RatingCount"/><Column Name="X"/>)

    1. Uncheck the “Use Location Visualization” option
    2. Edit the Fetched Properties by adding the two new Managed properties to this list, for example: <Column Name="Rating"/><Column Name="RatingCount"/>
    3. Using the XSL Editor button we will add our new customized XSLT (source included below).

  • this is pretty close to being identical to the two links I posted in my initial question.  what is different about your solution (other than the fact you are using FAST)?

  • Concept remains the same. It is just that the article is more detailed, so it might help you to troubleshoot your issue.

    I am pretty sure we ended up just giving up on this.  Either we ran out of time or something else more important came up so I stopped working on it.  Lacking proof that your response didn't work, I'll go ahead and mark it as the answer.
