Falcon Content Management Service

Help and support

By default your Falcon site uses its own search engine, which gives its results on a page within the site.

If you want instead to use the University search engine, go to Site Setup > Site Configuration and scroll down the page until you see Use University search engine, where there are options to allow you to select how your site search works.

If the box next to Use University search engine is not checked, the default Plone site search is used but your site will still be searched by the University site-wide search (although you ought to tell us about your server to ensure this happen straight away).

Check the box to use the ‘whole University’ search, or add your Institution ID and a search filter if you want to constrain the search to one or a number of sites (a search filter covers a number of web servers but is expressed as a single expression). More information is available from
