Content Search Web Part

In  the first step, let’s create the authoring and publishing site collection.

Authoring Site collection allows authors to manage their website content while the Publishing Site collection reviews the content from the authoring site collection.

Open the Authoring site collection.

Create a list named “banner” that contains title, description, and images.

Let’s go and create a control and a template to display the items.

Control Template: It provides the overall structure (layout) of the HTML elements along with start and end tags.

Item Template: It renders the items from the list, and contains text and  pictures.

Now, let’s create a two display templates for display a bootstrap carousel banner control and banner item

Code – Banner Control Template

Upload the script and CSS into style library.


Add the scripts and css in to control template.

  1. <script>
  2.         $includeCSS(this.url, “~sitecollection/Style%20Library/banner/bootstrap.min.css”);
  3.         $includeCSS (this.url, “~sitecollection/Style%20Library/banner/custom.css”);
  4.         $includeScript(this.url, “~sitecollection/Style%20Library/banner/bootstrap.min.js”);
  5.         $includeScript(this.url, “~sitecollection/Style%20Library/banner/jquery.min.js”);
  6.     </script>

Now, I am going to define the HTML layout to the Control Template.

  1. <div class=“container”>
  2.             <br>
  3.             <div id=“myCarousel” class=“carousel slide” data-ride=“carousel”>
  4.             <ol class=“carousel-indicators”>
  5.             <li data-target=“#myCarousel” data-slide-to=“0” class=“active”></li>
  6.             <li data-target=“#myCarousel” data-slide-to=“1”></li>
  7.             <li data-target=“#myCarousel” data-slide-to=“2”></li>
  8.             <li data-target=“#myCarousel” data-slide-to=“3”></li>
  9.            </ol>
  10.       <!– Wrapper for slides –>
  11.               <div class=“carousel-inner” role=“listbox”>
  12.           _#= ctx.RenderItems(ctx) =#_
  13.                 </div>
  14.             </div>
  15.             </div>
  16.             </div>

The full code looks like the following.

  1. <html xmlns:mso=“urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” xmlns:msdt=“uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882”>

  29.             var siteURL = SP.PageContextInfo.get_siteAbsoluteUrl();
  30.             AddPostRenderCallback(ctx, function() {
  31.                 $.getScript(siteURL + “”);
  32.                     });
  33.             _#–>

  47.             </div>
  48.             </div>
  49.             </div>
  50.     </body>
  51. </html>

Let’s go to Item template and declare the managed properties and necessary variables.

  1. <!–#_
  2.             var siteURL = SP.PageContextInfo.get_siteServerRelativeUrl();
  3.             var itemIdx = ctx.CurrentItemIdx+1;
  4.             var title = $getItemValue(ctx, “Title”);
  5.             var desc = $getItemValue(ctx, “ImageDescription”);
  6.             var Image = $getItemValue(ctx, “PublishingImage”);
  7.         var esActive =“”;
  8.              if(itemIdx <= 1)
  9.                 esActive = “active”;
  10.                 _#–>

Render the HTML structure with the list item information.

  1. <!— HTML Goes Here –>
  2.         <div class=“item _#= esActive =#_”>
  3.         <img src=“_#= Image =#_” alt=“Chania” width=“460” height=“345”>
  4.         <div class=“carousel-caption”>
  5.         <h3>_#= title =#_</h3>
  6.         <p>_#= desc =#_</p>
  7.         </div>
  8.         </div>
  9. <!—End of HTML–>

Overall Item template code looks like the following.

  1. <html xmlns:mso=“urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” xmlns:msdt=“uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882”>
