Searching for Content

Click on the Content tab to display the Content Search Manager. The Content Search Manager allows you to Search Content, Add/Edit Content, or Import Content by uploading a file.

To search for content, simply choose a *Content Type from the "Type" drop down menu, then use any one of the following parameters to refine the content search:

  • Search: Keyword searches ALL of the fields of the specified Content Type for matching content
  • Language: dotCMS supports multiple language versions of the same contentlet.  Change languages to search for content versions specific to a particular language (languages must be configured by a webmaster)
  • Keyword Search: Any field checked as "searchable" in the field properties will be keyword searchable in the Content Search Manager
  • Category Search: If a category has been placed in the content structure, one or more categories may be chosen to search for content labeled by that category

*Content Types currently consist of "static" Content, or the Widget Content Type which is an advanced, re-usable, "dynamic" Content Type. 

For more information, please see the documentation on Adding a Widget Structure Type.
