Sharepoint connector: "Search Confluence and Sharepoint" only searches Sharepoint?

We're currently using the Confluence Sharepoint connector at work, and it has some nice features.

One issue I've noticed though is that the "Search Sharepoint & Confluence" option in the search box only seems to search Sharepoint.

What's going on there? Are we missing a config setting somewhere?

G'day Dave,

You'll need to configure your SharePoint Search Center to include federated search results from Confluence if you want to see both sets of results on one page.

Installation & setup instructions for this are outlined on our documentation for SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 instances.

Do you know if this has been done? If it has, and you are still seeing no Confluence results on the page, there's probably a mis-configuration between Confluence and the Federated Location in SharePoint - let me know if this is the case and I can help you track it down.

Thanks - didn't realise I'd have to modify sharepoint as well. Seems obvious in retrospect, though!
