    I have 2 needs that for some reason I can't find options for.
    User types in a search item, and clicks search
    User gets back a list of pages
    User clicks on link from list of pages to take them to the page with the found search item
    When displaying this result page, the text searched for is not displayed.
    Can we have the actual page display highlighted words? or am I looking at putting something in custom?

    Additionally, we have a tabbed box that makes some sub pages available. The problem is that it appears the search does not search the additional tabs.

    To each search result a css class is added sfHighlight which you can style with the theme for the page or by placing Css widget on the page with search results with the following
    .sfHighlight {
     backgroundcolor:blue !important;

    For the tabbed box: make sure the search index searches in static html (the checkbox "static html" in the search index creation dialog). If the tabbed box renders the content that should be searched as html it will be searched the next time you publish the page. Page publishing causes page contents to be pushed in the search index.
