    Umbraco Tree-search on custom fields

    Is there a way to search in the content-tree for values in custom fields?

    for instance: I have a nodetype containing a property "fldName".

    How can I search (using the searchbar above the content-tree) for values in "fldName"? I've checked the internal search indexer (and searcher) and I've added the IndexUserFields to the InternalIndexSet.

    It works when searching in the searcher on the Examine Developers tab. But I want to be able to search for that field in the content-search.

    Or is this simply impossible?

    Hi Jeroen

    Yes you can replace, or update the search logic, for the backoffice search for a particular tree, eg here 'content', by implementing the interface ISearchableTree, introducing your custom searching logic, and then at Umbraco startup time, register your implementation of ISearchableTree as the one for Umbraco to use.

    Have a look at the documentation here:



    It should have all the steps you need to follow to implement your own backoffice search for content!
