    No results for internal / backend search


    Anyone else having problems getting results for the internal content search? I've been working with Examine a lot and have it working the way I want for external searching, but internal seach never returns any results.

    - I've looked at the internal index in Luke, and it looks correct
    - I've deleted the internal indexes and let them be recreated
    - The internal member search works fine
    - No error in system log
    - Config below for internal search from ExamineSettings.config:

          <add name="InternalIndexer" type="UmbracoExamine.UmbracoContentIndexer, UmbracoExamine"
               analyzer="Lucene.Net.Analysis.WhitespaceAnalyzer, Lucene.Net"/>

    ...and from ExamineIndex.config:

        <IndexSet SetName="InternalIndexSet" IndexPath="~/App_Data/TEMP/ExamineIndexes/Internal/">
            <add Name="id" />
            <add Name="nodeName" />
            <add Name="updateDate" />
            <add Name="writerName" />
            <add Name="path" />
            <add Name="nodeTypeAlias" />
            <add Name="parentID" />
          <IndexUserFields />
          <ExcludeNodeTypes />

    Did you upgrade to a new version of Examine by any chance?

    If so see this post

    The backoffice search only matches against NodeName, are you searching against a valid one?

    Thanks Rich, that's it.

    To be specific, I needed to update the SearchProvider analyzer to Lucene.Net.Analysis.Standard.StandardAnalyzer. I had already updated the indexer's analyzer but apparently that wasn't enough.

    Is there a way that I can make the internam search look through other properties of Media items, other than the name?
    I extended the IndexSet and I can see the properties getting indexed, but I cannot see them in the search results. I was wondering where is the code that handles that? Is is in a library like umbraco.presentation.umbraco.Search.QuickSearchHandler?

    Well behind on answering here, but you can prefix your search term by *, then you'll search all indexed fields.

    I found out from the well hidden documentation on line 58 in QuickSearchHandler.ashx.cs in the Umbraco.Web project.
    // if it starts with * then search all fields.

    thank you very much Lars-Erik :)
    I found the "*" a not so long ago and actually ended up using the "*" search to find images by their properties
