What should I do to apply this feature to a FAST Search Center?

Hi! I need this solution but not for the Enterprise Search Center, I need it for the FAST Search Center. What should be the simpliest approach to do it?

Sorry this response is from memory as I haven't tested the adapters with the FAST search centre in quite some time but I believe the Enterprise adapter should work for the FAST search centre as it has the same master page/page layout structure.

Have you tried that or not had any luck?

Hi Nick,

I already tried and it keep telling me "System.InvalidOperationException: The feature cannot be activated because the current site is not a Basic Search Center".

I assumed that at some point the solution was "tied" to a site template and that was the reason I was having this problem. Is that right?

Ah ok that makes things clear.

There are two features deployed by the WSP - a site level feature for basic search centres (which does check the site template) and a site collection feature for enterprise search centres. The site collection feature for enterprise search centres should be the one that will also work with FAST.

Hope that helps?!
