    Hi,

    We have quite a lot of important pages that aren't in sitefinity and we want to include the search box in header of our website.

    Is there any way to add sitefinity search box to pages outside sitefinity?

    Reagards,
    Slawek

    Hi Slawek.

    You'll need to create a custom search indexer.  If you watch the latest webinar on search you'll see how to do this.


    Cheers

    Adam

    Hello,

    You can also include the pages as external ones in Sitefinity - this way they will be indexed. Then you can have any form that submits "the query" to a page with Sitefinity SearchResults control.

    Best wishes,

    That is great!  Did not realize you guys indexed external pages as well.  How many levels deep do you go?

    Hello Adam @Habanero,

    The Sitefinity indexers are only crawling the pages that are in the sitemap. We are not following the links on the page, so we are indexing at one level only.
    Let me know if you have further questions.

    Kind regards,
