Advanced search by parent_id


In the search_indexing.conf we've got this line for ca_objects:


If we remove that "DONT_INCLUDE_IN_SEARCH_FORM", could this field be used in a search form?

  • Yeah, removing that option will allow it to appear in forms.
  • Hi Seth!

    We did the reindex, but the field don't rendered in the advanced search form.

    we tried:
