The Site Facet narrows search results down to those existing in a certain site. Each Site with content matching the searched keyword appears as a facet term.


Figure 1: Each Site with matching content is a facet term.

For the Site Facet to display multiple sites, the Search Bar must be configured to search Everything. See more about search scope here. If not searching for Everything, only the current site is searched, and the Site Facet has nothing to display. When this occurs, the Site Facet is hidden on the page.

The Site Facet contains several configuration options:


Figure 2: The Site Facet is configurable.

Site Parameter Name

Set the URL parameter name for the Facet. The default is site. Searching for lunar resort and clicking on a site facet produces the URL

http://localhost:8080/web/guest/search?q=lunar resort&site=20126
Max Terms
Set the maximum number of facet terms to display, regardless of how many matching terms are found for the facet.
Frequency Threshold
Set the minimum frequency required for terms to appear in the list of facet terms. For example, if the frequency threshold of a facet is set to 3, a term with two matching results doesn’t appear in the term result list.
Display Frequencies
Choose whether or not to display the term frequencies.
