Frequently Asked Questions

Click on the question to view it's answer...

How do I use the SharePoint Search String Highlighter?
Simply open your SharePoint portal search page and write some words to search for. The words you write will be highlighted in the search results.
Does it work on SPS, WSS, both?
SharePoint Search String Highlighter supports both SPS and WSS.
Does it work on the new MOSS 2007?
Yes. SharePoint Search String Highlighter V2 supports both SharePoint 2003/WSS 2.0 and MOSS 2007/WSS 3.0.
I searched for a word but it is not highlighted
  1. Make sure the word you searched for is more than 2 characters long.
  2. Please note that special characters are ignored. If your query contained special characters such as ! or @ (for example) it may be the cause of the problem. Try running a simpler search (for example "sharepoint" or "page") and verify that the SharePoint Search String Highlighter works.
  3. Try clearing your Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 cache. This is done by closing all instances (windows) of Microsoft Internet Explorer and then opening Control Panel>Internet Options and on the General tab pressing the "Delete Files" button.
How do I get the words to be highlighted in the documents I go to from the search?
The SharePoint Search String Highlighter supports highlighting the searched words in Microsoft Word documents opened from the search page. For this to work, you must have the portal registered as a safe site in the Internet Explorer options in the client machines.
I changed some settings using the configuration utility, but it doesn't have any effect
Try clearing your Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 cache. This is done by closing all instances (windows) of Microsoft Internet Explorer and then opening Control Panel>Internet Options and on the General tab pressing the "Delete Files" button.
I did something wrong and the Highlighter stopped working
To reset the highlighter to its starting state, open the configuration utility (Start>Program>KWizCom> SharePoint Search String Highlighter> SharePoint Search String Highlighter Configuration Utility) and press "Reset to Defaults"
Do I have to install anything on my company's client-PCs?
No. KWizCom SharePoint Search String Highlighter is a server installation. Once you install it on your SharePoint server, all users can start using it.
What happens with non-Office 2003 documents?

The document marking is done using Office Word 2003 API. However, there are additional document types besides ".doc" that can be viewed using MS Word (for example: .rtf, .txt).

So, for the SharePoint Search String Highlighter to mark non-MS Office files you should define these types in the configuration utility.

Which MS Office versions are supported?
Office 2003 and Office 2007.
What about PDF documents?
.PDF files are also supported. When you click a .pdf file from the search results page, it'll be opened in Search format, showing all searched phrase occurrences.
