On my current project i have pages and some articles entered in a datatype.

The SImple Page Search component is searchig only in pages and is not in the datatype. What shall i use / do to have a search working also for the items added in the datatype?

Yes, the "simple page search" package will only search page's, not data types.

If you are a C# jockey you can probably go work with the code (I think you find it below ~/app_code/composite/search) and include different types of data. This solution will stop working when your site gets to a certain size and traffic amount, but for smaller sites I guess it will just fine.

You could also look at some of the other search packages - the google ones are quite nice.

Thanks for the answer mawtex

I think we'll go with the first solution, google site search requires a commercial account.
