SupportCategory: Materialize WordPressSearch Page Contents
Kmartinsen asked 3 months ago

Hello, is there a way to search not only posts and portfolio items, but page content when using the Materialize WP theme?
I saw one message pertaining to this question for a different theme (https://trendytheme.net/question/search-box-and-search-pages/), it did note it as a possibility but didn’t provide any instructions. 
Thank you in advance for your help!

Thank you Nazibul! 
That worked, I updated the page display in the child to page experts and it is working great! 
Do you know if there is a way to have two search features? One that searches the page, like you solved for (THANK YOU), and another that searches the blog posts? It would nice to allow my users to search page contents from the Navigation search feature, but then search blog posts when using the blog sidebar search. 
Thank in advance for your time!

Hello Nazibul, 
We add more blog post pages and it is now pulling both blog posts and pages again? Could you take another look? The site url is http://gpsstaging.wpengine.com

Hello Kmartinsen,
Do you want to show the result differently?

If possible having two options would be terrific. One version that searches pages and one that searches blogs. But if I had to choose an option, I would pick pages.

Hello,
If we create two options we have to do some custom work and you have to pay for it. 
Thanks

Oh and I wanted to ask, is there a way to set specific pages/posts to be ignored by the search feature? 

Kmartinsen answered 2 months ago

How much would you quote? And would that include the option to hide or ignore specific pages/posts? 

Nazibul Hasan Staff answered 2 months ago

Hello,
The cost will be $100 and by this amount we will fix your pages and posts search issue. We did not understand your this question((http://prntscr.com/nil0zl)) properly.
Best Regards

Kmartinsen answered 2 months ago

Understood, that price sounds fine to me. If I’m understanding your response correctly that doesn’t include specific options/widgets to have two search options for pages and posts separately? 
Let me try rephrasing the other question regarding ignoring specific pages:
We have pages and posts on our website that we would like to exclude from any search results on our site. Some of these pages include landing pages or internal resource pages used for employee support that are already set to no-index. We wouldn’t want a prospect/website visitor searching the term “pricing” and finding internal employee resources or gated landing pages for PPC. Is there a way to add an option via the pages/posts editor to disable that page/post from being included in the search query? 
Let me know if you want to jump on a call to discuss since we are talking about actually quoting services.
