Avtor allows the content editor to leverage Sitecore’s search capabilities to find items in the content tree. When the user searches for text, the Sitecore content index queries using the search criteria the user submitted. Items matching the search criteria are highlighted in the content tree.
The content editor uses the Search ribbon to locate items in the content tree. The search ribbon allows the user to specify the search criteria for the items they are interested in.
The five criteria that can be used to search Sitecore items are:
When the user searches for content, the search results are shown in the editing pane by highlighting the found items.
The above screen shows how search results are indicated in the editing pane. The items highlighted in blue are items matching the search criteria.
Some items may contain a magnifying glass next to the name in the content tree. This icon is present when child items under a collapsed item match the search criteria.
When content in an item bucket matches the search criteria, the items will be displayed under the item bucket search box and automatically highlighted. Please see item buckets for more information.
