When I started playing with my shiny new Search form, I got a nasty shock in that the search results were sub-optimal, to say the least. My (offline) site is mostly static pages and it seems WP search function is mostly post-oriented -- although it does return every image title on the site.
I now see - here - that there are acknowledged shortcomings in the WP search function so this is really off-topic for this forum, hence I've marked it Resolved.
But if anyone here knows how to a) force the engine to search in static pages; and b) stop it returning image titles which are anyway invisible to visitors, I would be jolly grateful to know the answer. Perhaps I get the image titles returned because I am logged in as Admin and they wouldn't be returned in a live search by a vsitor?
