Site search - works with embedded content?

#1

Hi there,
Im wondering if site search can include results from a embedded Google Sheet?

And if not – would it be possible in some other way?

#2

No. The search component will not look at HTML embeds.

Put the sheet data into a cms collection. Or, look at a custom third-party search tool you could integrate via custom code. Take a look at https://www.algolia.com/.

Ive tried this – do I have to do anything else than just to put in a cms collection? (because that dont work)

You have to set a field to be searchable.

And if i dont want that field to be visible anywhere but in the cms editor, is that still possible to ad as a searchable, hidden, field?

@pondus - I believe that is the case, but I could be wrong. Not something I needed to do before. You should test to confirm.
