People Search Data Fields (XSLT –> XML)

Within SharePoint 2007, the output of a “standard” search results webpart – and/or people search webpart – can be controlled using XSLT.

Most folk know it’s fairly tricky to deal with XSLT – not just the format of the markup, but also determining what values are in the data source.

Found a great tip from Novotronix, with a small piece of XSLT that shows ALL data elements. 

(1) Click the “XSL Editor” button.

(2) Replace the XSLT with the chunk from here.


(3) Click Save

The output shown will now look just like a plain chunk of XML.


Here’s the XML chunk you need (as detailed in the referenced blog post)

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="; >
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes" />
<xsl:template match="/">
<xmp><xsl:copy-of select="*"/></xmp>
