SharePoint 2013 Customize Search results to redirect to a custom URL instead of opening a word or dispform.aspx of an item

Rajiv, Shanmuga Priya 41 Reputation points


I have a document library with documents for which a custom view page (in site pages) is created and it is used in the application level.

Would like to check if the search results of the document library can redirect users to that custom url with ID as querystring.

Also we have another similar requirement to redirect search results to a site page with ID as querystring for a SharePoint list instead of DispForm.aspx

    You need to customize SharePoint search display template. And you could get the item URL with ctx.CurrentItem.Path, then you could get the ID value and append it to the view page url.

    My simple test :

    <a href=" http://sp/SitePages/WikiWiki.aspx?_#= ctx.CurrentItem.Path.split('?')[1] =#_">http://sp/SitePages/WikiWiki.aspx?_#= ctx.CurrentItem.Path.split('?')[1] =#_</a>
