Custom search widget to Sitefinity 8.0

  • Custom search widget to Sitefinity 8.0
  • Hi everyone,

    I'm using Sitefinity 8.0 and I wanted to have a search box with a drop down menu next to it to select search categories from. I found this thread:

    www.sitefinity.com/.../extending-sitefinity-search-and-searching-by-category

    Where code was provided to do almost exactly that. Unfortunately, this was for Sitefinity 5.1 and so I've run into some problems trying to add the code to my SF 8 website. So far, I added the customsearch project to my existing project in visual studio, added the reference, then registered the widget with Thunder (it says successfully registered). But when I try to add the customsearch widget to one of my pages in the Page Editor, I get a pop up window saying:

     

    Type "SearchByCategory.Widgets.CustomSearchBox, SearchByCategory, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" cannot be resolved.

     

    I'm not sure what this means exactly so any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
