    Erik Johnson We've been using Paligo to manage our content and accidentally found that the 'accordion' attribute hides content from search results. This did cause us to reevaluate how the attribute is used as we want most of that content to be found but a happy accident is that release notes content no longer pollutes search results. I do not know how to create an 'accordion' in ZD natively.

    Hi, can we only set the search to find Help Center articles and not community topics/posts?

    Is there a setting for this? Thank you!

    You probably have scoped to KB enabled. See this section

    Scoped search in Knowledge base

    This might also help.

    search helper


    Inserts a search box.



    • scoped (optional, boolean) If scoped is true and the helper is on the category, section, or article page, searches only the articles in the current category. If the helper is on the topic or post page, searches only the posts in the current topic. Default is false.
    • submit (optional, boolean) If true, render the submit button. Default is false.
    • instant (optional, boolean) If true, enables Instant Search to provide HC article suggestions while you type in the search box. Instant Search article suggestions do not respect the scoped parameter if it is set.
    • class (optional, string) class name to be added to the form
    • placeholder (optional, string) placeholder value for the search input element
    • All pages

    If inserted in the Home page:

    <section class="search-box">
      <form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="/hc/en-us/search" class="search" method="get" role="search">
        <div style="display:none"><input name="utf8" type="hidden" value="&#x2713;" /></div>
        <input id="query" name="query" placeholder="Search" type="search" />
        <input name="commit" type="submit" value="Search" />
