How to Build Search for User Profile Information with Search Boost

Tired of the default DNN search throwing out irrelevant results when search for user profile information? Look no further!

One of the things people have been less than fond about as regards DNN has been it’s search functionality. This has become even more of an issue when it comes to DNN as there’s simply no way to search for user profile and user information… that is, until now. Now you can enhance your portal search results by leveraging the awesome of power of the DotNetNuke’s number one search engine, Search Boost.

Simply try Search Boost and your search will be instantly transformed.

Not Convinced?

Check out in the video below how to use it to build a simple search that looks for the keywords in user first and last name, but also in the biography field.

The users of your portal will thank you for making their search experience simply work. They’ll be able to find what they’re looking for.

Power Up Your DNN Search

As you now, Search Boost has bunch of features  and lots of room for customization. But it’s not really about features, it’s about what you get from using Search Boost:
  • Better results for your users, which means happy users.
  • Better control over search results for you.
  • Better experience for both you and your users.
So...happy searching! :)
