SPPB and Joomla Search (or Smart Search)

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Can I just check how SPPB works in relation to Joomla search?

Are SPPB pages indexed/searched on using either the basic Joomla Search or the Smart Search (Finder)?
And how does it work with SPPB content using the Article plugin? If we add content into an Article using the SPPB plugin, then someone performs a search, is the content held in SPPB searched on and shown or does it always only search in whatever is in the article?

Hi, We are working on search plugin. Thanks

Thanks Toufiq - so I take it from this answer that means that, at present, SPPB content is not indexed for search, either within an SPPB page or using the SPPB article plugin?

So if we've added content into an article using the SPPB article integration and perform a search, none of that content will be picked up?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Now it works page name and page content.

-Thanks

Oh, so the content is indexed after all?

Is that just for SPPB pages (ie using the component) or does it work for the Article plugin too (ie when we have added SPPB content into an article)?

Hi, Thanks for your reply. Now it works Page and article title and inner content keyword wise. Thanks

Sorry if I'm not quite understanding you properly Toufiq but are you saying that content added to an Article using the SPPB integration (*not from a separate SPPB page*) is indexed by search?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

1. I have created one page from SP Page Builder
2. I have created an article and designed by sp page builder
3. I have also created normal article without sp page builder

Every item has similar content inside the content area and page title not similar or similar. Then if you search the inner content any text then you will get similar. That's the point.

-Thanks

hi Toufiq

Just to follow up on this as I never quite understood your last point and didn't have time to follow it up until now, however I've now tested this a bit further by adding a random, rare word "syzygy" to some pages. I've added this to:

  • An SPPB page
  • A Joomla article and into the regular editor's area
  • The same Joomla article as above but switching to using the SPPB editor and entering that keyword into a text box addon


When I then perform a search for the word "syzygy" I get only hits for 2 of the above - one for the SPPB page and one for the Joomla article. I do not get a hit on the Joomla article when the content has only been added into the SPPB layout.

So it looks, at present, that any content which is added into Joomla article using the SPPB plugin is not bring indexed by Joomla search - see this screencase to confirm:https://www.screencast.com/t/8diY5Xxx

Can you confirm if this is the case and if there is a way for the search to also index the SPPB content too?

(apologies for the sluggishness in the screencast, their server was running very slowly at the time!)

Hi,
indeed, we have to improve search plugin to index deeper inside articles when they are in SPPB mode.
I hope in upcoming 3.x it will be implemented.
