Search on Communities


We have a requirement to provide a search option to communities which actually performs search within communities as well as invoke an external web service to get the results from the customer websites. We have a requirement to display both the search results in a single page (we can show as 2 separate block). 

We have tried below 2 options and faces 2 different problems 
1. Provide a custom search - we can call a method which in turn call the Web Service as well as use SOSL to get the result list from different SFDC objects. But we are unable to provide a hyperlink to the search results returned from SOSL queries, so that record detail page can be open.
2. Enable global search in communities - obviously we can not call web service from the global search 

any thoughts on this will be highly appreciated.
