On my site, I post articles from various news sources, many of which are free to copy as long as you retain a copyright notice. Others cannot be copied, so this is what I want to do with those so that they are still searchable, but I'm not distributing the article against the terms of the copyright:
For the regular articles, I will just put the text of them in the contents area. For the copyrighted articles, I want to put the full text of them in the Excerpt area (which is not displayed) and just have the title and link show on the page. I already have this working. See the top article at http://www.publichealthcenter.com
The problem is that the search field, on the News Archives page (which is the default blog index and default search function) does not search the contents of the Excerpt field.
How can I get the default search funtion to search the article Excerpts and Contents?
