[resolved] Search-Engine Not finding all pages (5 posts)

    I am stuck and need help. We recently redesigned and launched our web site:
    http://www.bowerwebsolutions.com

    The site consists of static .php pages which were hand coded excepted for the Blog section which is powered by WordPress 3.2.1. For about 3 months prior to the full launch of the new site, we had our blog running with your Search-Engine (latest version) running and everything was fine.

    When it came time to launch the full site to public, we reset the Search Engine settings (Dashboard ->Search Engine-> Settings) and reindexed the entire site (our hand code pages and the WP pages)

    It appears that the plugin is finding and indexing all the pages, yet when I search for a term with a static .php page that is one or two directory levels down, it does not return any results. When I search Google for the specific url in question, Google has already reindexed it so I dont think it is being blocked by any robot.txt / NOINDEx commands.

    Any ideas?

    Wel I figured it out and answered my own question. Hope this helps folks. If you are using this plug in, all your static php pages must have links relative to the SITE ROOT and NOT relative links. Once I fixed that throughout the site, the search engine picked up all the pages it had missed before.

    There may be a few issues with relative links, as this plugin does it's best to detect the current page and converts relative links to absolute during indexing as it spiders across to pick up URLs to index.
