    Hi,

    We are busy upgrading our website from 3.7 sp3 to 3.7 sp4. The search on our old 3.7sp3 website is returning more results than the 3.7 sp4 website. Both sites have the exact same content. Do you know what could be causing this issue?

    Thanks,
    Annie

    Hello Annie,

    There are fixed bugs in the ContentIndexProvider. There was an issue in 3.x where all content items were indexed including these one with publication date greater that DateTime.Now.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    So you are saying that there was a bug in the older 3.x sitefinity for search? Is that fixed in 3.7 sp4.
    so in the previous versions where unpublished content showing up in search?

    Thanks,
    Annie

    Hi Annie,

    In versions prior 3.7 SP4 which is the object we are discussing here feature content is added to the index. The issue has been fixed in Sitefinity 3.7 SP4.

    Hi Ivan,

    Thanks for your reply. Apart from the bug fix was any other changes made to the search engine, in one of the searches that we did we were missing about 40 pages of published content...

    Thanks,
    Annie

    Hi Annie,

    Here is a list with all fixes we made between Sitefinity 3.7 SP3 and 3.7 SP4. There are no other changes to the search engine that the fix I told you about.

    You can check App_Data/sitefiniy.log for some related errors. You could have something on your pages or content item content that breaks the search. Controls that use session and forms authentication methods breaks the index service if the logic is not escaped from the crawler request.

    Sincerely yours,
