Include pages title and excerpt in search results


It seems that the search feature does not cover pages in the same way as it cover posts.

I could not find any feature requests and maybe I am missing an important point why it is not done, but I think this may be useful.

Thanks !

I asked about this a while ago, and people ridiculously claimed that it did indeed search pages as well. The overall forum suggested that I must be at fault or it’s a problem with my installation.

It’s an oversight, but no one is acknowledging it. It’s been that way since the search feature came out.


That’s strange because the search box helper is quite explicit.
It says “Search posts, tags and authors”. It does not mention “pages” in that list and indeed it does not search in pages.
