Enable Search and Search Suggestions for Page Designer Pages

Page Designer pages and components are content assets, but they're not assigned to folders. To make them searchable, you must extend the ContentSearchModel to remove the folder filter. To find Page Designer pages and components using content suggestions, you must remove the folder filter from the SuggestModel.

For example, in the Storefront Reference Architecture (SFRA) searchHelpers.js file, we could add the following line to the setupContentSearch function so that searching can find content assets that are not in folders:


The modified setupContentSearch function is as follows:

function setupContentSearch(params) {
    var ContentSearchModel = require('dw/content/ContentSearchModel');
    var ContentSearch = require('*/cartridge/models/search/contentSearch');
    var apiContentSearchModel = new ContentSearchModel();

    var contentSearchResult = apiContentSearchModel.getContent();
    var count = Number(apiContentSearchModel.getCount());
    var contentSearch = new ContentSearch(contentSearchResult, count, params.q, params.startingPage, null);

    return contentSearch;

In the Storefront Reference Architecture (SFRA) SearchServices.js file, we could set the setFilteredByFolder attribute of the SuggestModel to false so that content assets that are not in folders can be found using content suggestions:


The modified code is as follows:

if (searchTerms && searchTerms.length >= minChars) {
        suggestions = new SuggestModel();
        categorySuggestions = new CategorySuggestions(suggestions, maxSuggestions);
