Does Search module require content in database?

edited September 2017 in Modules
Hi, I'm curious if the Search module performs its search exclusively on the database, as with Wordpress? Or is it able to search/index the pages themselves, at least initially. We have a couple sites we'd like to add Search to, but all pages have been hardcoded with little/no content in the database. Thanks


  • After installing the search module, you need to "reindex" - which pulls the content into a table for the search to act on. For CMS pages, the search table is maintained automatically. For hard-coded pages, you'll need to reindex on each manual change
