Limit Page Crawler

MJ FV asked on April 15, 2015 15:57

I created a smart search index Page Crawler in my Blog so i can search for a custom field i created(blog post author).

I couldn't use the Page Index because it only searched for the ID and not the name.

My problem is that i have webpart in the root with the recent blog posts. So now the if i search for one blog post i get all the blog posts since it is in the root.

Can we limit the crawler so it doesn't search the header/footer of the root?

It should be possible to use Page index in this scenario. I would recommend to double check the search settings of your page type in Page types -> edit your page type -> Search fields section. Is the custom filed marked as content?

As for the page crawler, yes it is possible to exclude certain elements on page, so they will not be processed by search crawler. Please check the following knowledge base article for more information
