  • Hi Fabio,

    This isn't possible OOTB with SharePoint Search (unless you have FAST), to sort all the results by anything other than relevance and date modified. There's an article on it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh144966(v=office.14).aspx

    You would need to do some custom development, or customise the XSLT used in the core results webpart to sort the results based on the current page. of results. There are plenty of examples of doing that (using XSLT) on this forum and the web.

    I just added a webpart to the TechNet Gallery that allows administrative users to upload, crop and format user profile photos. Check it out here: Upload and Crop User Profile Photos
