How To Set Up

To allow for SharePoint search to be able to index and find content on LiveTiles pages, you will need to turn on Publishing. Once this has been turned on, all pages created through LiveTiles will be saved under article pages. This will allow content created using the text, content and image tiles to be indexable via the SharePoint search.

To do this, you will need to go to the site settings. Here, under Site Collection Admin, you will need to select the site collection features option. In this area, you will see the option SharePoint server publishing features which will need to be activated. Once activated, you will need to resave any pages which you would like to be searchable.

If, however, you aren't able to turn on the SharePoint Publishing, you will be able to extend out the wiki page type by adding in the following items:

  • LtArticleByLine: Single Line of Text
  • LtPublishingPageImage: Image with publishing

To add these fields to the wiki page, you will first need to add them as site columns. To do this, you will need to go to the site settings. Here, you will need to go to the site columns under web designer galleries. Here under create, add in the following fields to the custom section. Once these have been added, you will need to go back to the site settings and go to site content types. Here, open up the wiki pages and under Columns, go to the add from existing site columns and add them here. Once these have been added, you will need to resave the pages in order for the pages to be indexed.
