Subject kinda says it all. I have an article with included images. The images have captions. Is there any way I can make XP automatically index the caption (and displayname) of the image indexed in the _alltext field of the parent element?
I would like to use this to improve the search function on a site. It makes more sense in our use case to present the actual content page to the user in the search results, rather than the image object.
Short answer: No, because XP content is stored in the repo as a database (master data), it is not a “search index”. Indexing across items causes tons of potential issues and has side-effects you will not like.
Long answer: You can create this functionality by index the data you want in another repo (search index). Fill this repo with content using server events, batch jobs or even crawling - and you get exactly the indexing you are looking for!
Hmmm. These server events sound interesting. I was unaware of such functionality. Are there public hooks I can use for this? Do you have an example?
Events are kind of “advanced level”, and needs better docs. However here is something to start with:
Listeners should most likely be placed in main.js (as they will then instantly be active when an app is started). Once you get events, you may start reacting to them.
I believe there are explicit content events too…
