How do I index content of cusom module for Smart Search?

Post by GillianBPP » Mon Oct 25, 2021 1:27 pm

I'm working on a new website and have added a Smart Search module. I have indexed the website but I think the indexer is ignoring the content in a custom module. I frequently use custom modules to add what is basically an article to be displayed outside the component area. Is there any way to include this? I'm trying to avoid having to use Articles Anywhere for every custom module.

Thanks.

How do you intend to link to the module?

The module will be in a position in the template on a menu item. There may or may not be an article associated with the menu item. For example, I have a module position called 'Introduction' which spans the width of the page above the component area and any sidebars, but below the main menu. The modules in this position are usually custom modules with just text or text with a picture. This could a 'contact us' menu item with introductory text above a component area containing a contact form, but no articles on the page itself.

Use Google that indexes the rendered page.
