Site Content & Design: Content Discovery


The frontend search functionality helps explore your Curator content or access specific content directly without navigating through the menus.

**To enable search:**
  1. Navigate to the backend of the system (e.g. http://curatorexample.com/backend) and log in if prompted.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Curator > Portal Settings > Features > Usability
  3. Switch the toggle Search on to enable search

Note: The search toggle enables the search prompt shown in the menu. If enabled, you can also add a search bar to your page by using Page Builder

**What is being searched through?**

The search considers the following components to generate the search results:

  1. Titles
  2. Descriptions
  3. Keywords
  4. From version 2023.02.15 onwards: Text content on pages

Note: Search results reflect all permissions set on the BI Platforms or by using Restrict Access. In case you have added dashboards or built content that should not be visible in search results, enable the Hidden toggle. To hide dashboards navigate to the Misc tab and then in the Discovery section you find the toggle. To hide other types of content, the toggle is in the details pane.

**How do results display?**

Search results show the following components:

  • Thumbnail (default if none was created/ set)
  • Title
  • Description (if existing)
  • Keywords (if existing and matching the search term; max. 2 - more are indicated by an ellipsis)
  • If the result content is favorited or not

From release 2023.02.15 onwards: The description is only shown for Pages if there is a match in it. Otherwise, Pages will always show a preview of their content (with or without a match).

We highlight the match from your search term in the title, description, and keywords in bold font.

**Style your search**

Brand your search with the following settings

  • Add a custom search icon (Available since 2022.11.30)
  • Navigate to Settings > Curator > Themes > Styles > Logo and Icons to add your own search icon
  • Style the colors of your search results
  • Navigate to Settings > Curator > Themes > Search Options (in versions until 2022.09.28: Settings > Curator > Portal Settings > Styles > Search Options) to set the background and text color
  • Navigate to Settings > Curator > Themes > Styles > Miscellaneous > Navigation Highlight Color (in versions until 2022.09.28: Settings > Curator > Portal Settings > Styles > Miscellaneous > Navigation Highlight Color) to set the text color on hover

**Which algorithm is under the hood?**

Our search applies a fuzzy search algorithm implemented by fuse js. That way the search can display results even if the search term includes small typos.
