Preparing Smart Search plugins

For content to be displayed in search results it must first be indexed by one of the Smart Search plugins. Before starting the indexer, it is recommended that you review the available plugins and disable any that will not be necessary for your site. To review the available Smart Search plugins use the following procedure:

  1. Log in to the Administrator
  2. Go to Extensions > Plugins
  3. Filter the plugin list so that only Smart Search plugins are shown by selecting "finder" from the "Select Type" filter drop-down.
  4. Review the list of plugins and disable any that will not be necessary for your site by clicking on the green tick icon in the Status column for the plugin. This should change to a red circle to indicate that the plugin is disabled.

  Why is there a separate Smart Search content plugin?

This plugin monitors all changes in the content of your website. Changes to content will not update the Smart Search index if you do not enable this plugin.
