For some reason news does not get included in the search results on this site, apparently it never did and people didn't notice until a year or so later.

This is the search code

  status="not closed" 

    <input class="searchBox" type="text" name="keywords" id="keywords" value="" placeholder="Enter your keywords" size="18" maxlength="100" />
    <input class="searchLink" type="submit" value="search" class="submit" />


Here is a screenshot of the channel names: https://i.stack.imgur.com/5v9F2.png

Any tips? I've been tasked with some revisions on a EE based site. This is the very last thing I need to fix from the very long list and its driving me bonkers, would appreciate any help! :D

Check to ensure the fields associated with the actual channel "news_and_updates" are searchable.

In the field settings there is an option: Is field searchable?

Make sure any that need to be, are.

  • Did that solve your problem? Or do you need further assistance?
