Adding fields to search results
Brightspot lists the retrieved assets with a standard set of fields. You can add or remove fields from the listing.
The previous illustration shows how the search panel displays column and summary fields.
- Column fields appear in columns across the search panel.
- Summary fields appear within each result in the search panel.
To add fields to search results:
Select the content type from the Global Filters widget for which you would like to configure the search results page.
In the search panel, click Select Fields. The Show/Hide Fields pop-up displays.
- Select to modify the Columns shown on the search results page, or the Summary data shown on the search results page, by clicking the appropriate tab.
- Under Hidden Fields, type all or part of a field’s name. As you type, Brightspot filters the list of hidden fields.NoteThe fields on the Show/Hide Fields pop-up are organized by the tab on which they appear on the content edit form. In the image above, you can see a small portion of this pop-up showing the fields available on the Article Fields > Main tab.
- To add a field to the Selected Fields list, click next to a field name in the Hidden Fields list.
- To remove a field from the Selected Fields list, click next to a field name in the Selected Fields list.
- To modify the order of the fields in the Selected Fields list, click next to a field name, and drag it to the desired order.
- Click Update once you have the fields added, and in the appropriate order, in the Selected Fields list.
The Show/Hide Fields pop-up closes, and you return to the listing of retrieved assets with the new fields appearing. Now, every time you search on that content type, the fields you selected are displayed.
Once you have the fields set for your search results, you can sort by which ever field you would like.
To sort retrieved assets:
- From the Sort list, select the field by which you want to sort the listing of retrieved assets.
