I am using XSLT Search for search contents. It is working fine for the body text of the page. But when i am displaying .Net user control on page by creating macro, search is not working. It just search only body contents of the page only.
Also Please if anyone can help me if i want to go from microsoft search express instead of XSLT, would be appreciated.
You shouldn't have to use a .NET User Control to get the XSLT Search working. In the package that you installed, there was an XSLT-file, which should be placed on the template, where you want to show your search result. Probably the search.aspx page. Does that one work?
And if you need it, you can also specify other page fields that should be searched in. So you can search in all the page fields that you want eg.: bodyText, title, summary etc. etc.
I know. XSLT search is working but when i put .net user control into my page, its not searching content from the user control. Lets say i am creating macro name DisplayContent and it is the .net user control.
so how should i use this macro in xslt search?
Ahh I misunderstod your question before. I'm pretty sure you can't search content that's generated through a macro and inserted into a richtext editor. As far as I remember the XSLT Search uses the content from umbraco.config-file.This file contains the XML of all published nodes. But when a node is published, dynamic content from a macro isn't rendered inside of the richtext editor, meaning the content from the macro is not available in the generated XML.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is how it works.
oh i see. so if i want to search the contents which is displayed through macro, then what should i have to do?
If that's what you need, I don't think that XSLT search is the right solution for you. Then you'll probably have to take a look at one of the other options like Google Search, Examine or the Microsoft Search Express as you mentioned in your first post.
so do you have any idea how can i build it?
I haven't got much experience with the three other options that I mentioned, but the Google Search package that I linked to, seems to be installed quite easy. Try reading the small description on the package page and give it a go if you feel for it. The only downside of using the Google Search is that your pages has to be indexed before the search will find any matching pages. I could imagine that it's the same "problem" if you use the version from Microsoft.
Otherwise you have to spend some time playing around with Examine. I have seen a demonstration of Examine and it's very impressive. But unfortunately I'm not the right one to ask about implementing it as I haven't tried it.
Do you know the link where can i find the video link that you have seen for Examine?
On Umbraco.org you can find three videos about Examine right here. About half an hour just about Examine. They aren't free, but it's very cheap to buy a license. As you can see on this page, it's only 19€/month. That's pretty cheap, and you can then watch more that 9 hours of video made by the core team members.
I want to buy one, but so slow that I can watch video.
any free videos?
Yes, there are a couple of free videos. You can find them here. But they are introduction videos, and I don't think that there's a free one about Examine. But hey, 19€/month isn't that much anyway. And it's worth the money in my opinion :)
@viral and everybody else interested:
It's your lucky day(s). Right now you can get 6 months free access to the videos on umbraco.tv. Just use the sign up form on this page.
Thank you for the information. But i don't think so all videos are free. I have seen adding search video (http://umbraco.tv/help-and-support/video-tutorials/developing-with-umbraco/examine/adding-a-search-to-your-website) but its not free. it just play only for 2 minutes.
Again appreciate your response.
Hmm... did you sign up and submit the form on the page that I linked to in my latest post? And after you signed up, did you remember to log in here?
yes i did. But its not allow me to watch whole video.
Okay, then I think you need to contact one of the guys from the HQ to hear if anything is wrong with your login. Or hear folks on Twitter if anyone else has experienced the same problems.
So if i create new profile? would it allow me to watch all videos?
Sorry dude, but I don't know that. I haven't tried it.
No problem. But i do appreciate your help. Thanks.
