Search for text in a Widgetkit

I realized just now that you can not search for text in Widgetkit.

I searched for a solution here in yoo support and just found answers like: "There is no WidgetKit search plug-in in existence." or "look at the Joomla Extensions Directory" ...

It is elementary that all the content a website has the ability to be available for search.

It is expected that any component that publishes content has a plugin that enables the search.

It is expected that Yootheme available a solution for something as obvious as that.

  • Joomla
  • Widgetkit

Hello,
Same issue. I wonder why this point isn't asked more, since the search function in a content management system is essential for the user and widgetkit is home for content. Of course it's easy to make a reference to joomla, but why the possibility to enter custom content which is apparently not part of the indexed joomla content is offered at all?
delfine.coelho.09 is right: We need the search function to point to the original page with rendered widgetkit a.e. slideshow content and not a single article.
Best regards
Martin

There needs to be a plugin available for this. Widgetkit is built for content, and that content needs to be searchable. If there is one for Zoo, why not widgetkit?

Has this issue ever reached a solution?

Looks like this is another one of those Yootheme "not so important things to brings a solution"...

Working now with Widgetkit 2 and haven't found any relevant information about how to make content searchable

Hi,

If you want the content of a widget you are using to be searchable you need to make the widget fetch its data from Joomla.

You can do this by creating articles belonging to a specific category. Then create a new widget by clicking on use Joomla and not "add new". You can then tell the widget to display all articles belonging to a specific category. Because articles are searchable, you then have a widget that is searchable.

Best,
Nicolai

I understand that this solution is not professional ... something you'd expect from Yootheme.

There are two problems when doing this: - The search for the article point only (single item Widgetkit) and not the page where the Widgetkit (full) is published. - There is a need to create menu items for each item Widgetkit
