    I am trying to bind the generic content, news items dynamically to the user controls. How can I create index on the pages which use these controls?

    Hi Emil,

    Generally Sitefinity supports News Indexing. You can create a new index and specify your start point or a certain page you want to be indexed.
    If you want to index only certain controls on a page you should modify ~/App_Data/Search/[NAME_OF THE _INDEX]/fieldsInfoProvider.xml. In this file you can set weight to all fields you want to search.


    name = some name
    weight = -1 will not be indexed
    weight = 1 will be indexed
    filterTag = we are getting the div of the control
    filterAttributes - we are getting the ID ot the div

    Using filterTag and filterAttributes  will allow you to include or exclude some controls from the search results.
    Also each page has Searchable property that can also be used.
