A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIn the previous demo Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, showed how to create a phone messages search vertical in the SharePoint Search Center. He used the default results web part, which cannot be customized without using code.

In the demo below Peter shows how to replace the default results web part with a Content Search web part, which can be customized.

Replace the default results web part in a search vertical page

  1. Open the phone messages search vertical in edit mode.
  2. Delete the Search Results web part
  3. Click on the link Add a Web Part and select the Content Rollup category and the Content Search web part. Click on Add.
  4. Drag the Content Search web part to the bottom of the page.
  5. Click on the 'Change query' button.
  6. Select the query 'Items matching a content type (System)'. Do not restrict by app or tag but restrict to the phone messages content type. Click OK.

  8. Make other preferred settings to the web part and click on Apply.
