Unfortunately the content in widgets does not show up in the search results. I don't know of another way to get that to work without using an external search service like a Google Search Appliance. Thanks for the feature request!
Is there any plans for adding functinality to search the content of formatted text or html widgets?
We use the formatted text widget to "throw" essential information in the space in the face of our users, avoiding the need for looking through the associated documents.
Unfortunately, this approach means that the essential information is not searchable.
We would very much like to see this as a future feature of Clearspace.
This does seem like a rather serious flaw.
I am sure users will lose confidence in the search engine if it does not find something they are looking at on the page.
Any update on when this can be done?
