Express Objects not being indexed in search results (8.1.0)

Permalink 1 user found helpful
Search is functioning normally on my site, but when I search for information contained in an Express Object, nothing appears.

For example, I have a team of people who are all express objects and output to a Leadership page. When I search for the name of a person, the search says they can't be found. But when I go to the Leadership page, the name is there. So my theory is that the express objects aren't indexed in the system.

Is there possible a toggle I'm missing or is this a limitation due to the relative newness of express objects?

I have checked and these pages are not excluded from the search index.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi fatwreck,

Did you have any "solution" to this question? I need help too...

Hi there,
Since it was time sensitive, we ended up ditching the C5 built-in search and set up Sphider 1.5.1. It's a database search engine thing and wasn't too tough to get up and running. Make sure to not use the original Sphider since it uses out of date php. The one I'm linking to is a modified version based off the original to work with more modern standards.

Good luck!

I'm just guessing here, but why not upgrade to 8.2? The release is all about bug fixes, and it contains a lot of them (fixes).

We are running 8.2, and are running into similar issues on our site. I'm curious to hear some specific ways to move forward with getting express object data that is displayed in blocks to be indexed by search.
