    Zoom v5.1 (Build 1017)
    NetObjectsFusion v10
    CushyCMS

    I have a client site that has a working Zoom search that was based on a flat structure but I have just converted it so that the client can edit the content via CushCMS and to do this the content is pulled in via iFrames on every page. These content pages are held in a different folder to the main site folder. E.G.:-

    htdocs/html (for main site)
    htdocs/html-client (for client edited content)

    Two questions:
    1. If I run Zoom against the new site will the results and their links take the visitor to the /html-client thus losing the surrounding page and navigation?

    2. If this is the case how can I modify Zoom parameters to point to the correct pages?

    e.g: content searched will be found in /html-client/news.html but I need the search results to link to /html/news.html.

    Or don't I need to worry as Zoom is so brilliant!

    Hard to know for sure without looking at the site (or just trying it out).

    When Zoom (in Spider Mode only) indexes a page within an IFRAME, it will index the content within the IFRAME, but it will point the link to the page containing the IFRAME.

      Hi,

      The site in question is aaf-eu.org. At the moment it still has the old Zoom files in place (most of that works but the PDFs have moved so links to those all fail). Thus the need to re-index as soon as possible.

      I have overcome the problem of the results page by adding some javascript into the client pages that force the originating page to be shown. So in theory that shouldn't be a problem now.

      Just need to get Zoom back up and running

      Here is the last spider log:-

      P.S. I don't think the Instant Email Notification is working. Didn't get an email - at least not yet anyway.

        I think I have found the answer!!! Doh!

        I just realised there is an extra option in the configuration that I never knew was there - "Index page and follow all links"...I was using the default setting.

        The latest spider found the PDF files so it must be working!!!

        I'm a hapy bunny now

          OK.
          I don't know what question the answer answers, but if it is now working all is good.

            Hi!

            I am not sure this topic is relevant towards the latest version of ZSE, but I also struggle with ZSE not being able to index the content inside an iframe (which is a normal .html file). I can't find the option Adendum is refering to either - please give me a hint on wheter I should provide more info, or if this option exists elsewhere and can be of help to me?

            Thanks!

              When Zoom (in Spider Mode only) indexes a page within an IFRAME, it will index the content within the IFRAME.

              if it isn't working as expected on your site, then you should first check the log file for errors e.g. the IFRAME points to a file outside of your domain name, and you are only indexing files in your domain (i.e. you don't want to let the spider escape and index the entire internet).

              The indexing option referred to above was probably this one.
