Global Search from Gallery

What does Gallery search allow you to do?

  • Gallery Search allows you to look for and quickly surface results across the content across Kapost.
  • Search will look at a multitude of fields including, but not limited to: Title, Author, Content Body, Standard Fields, and Custom Fields.
  • Use Boolean queries in global search: include AND, NOT, and OR to specify what you’re looking for.

When you're searching within a Collection, your search results will only pull content from that Collection, not across the whole Gallery. 

Unlike Search in Studio, Global Search in Gallery doesn't surface results of attachments on content, along with payments, tags, and content number. Gallery Global Search does not weigh by recency.  

Steps to Initiate Search:

  1. While in Gallery, click the search magnifying glass icon on the top navigation bar. An overlay will open with a search input field. Smart search without the overlay is also available on all search bars in Gallery including Collections, Favorites, and All Content within Manage Content
  2. Type in your keyword or query to find results
  3. Once you find what you're looking for, click on the asset to open it 


What shows up when you search?

  • After typing in your query you will see results start to come in via the type-ahead searching
  • Results are arranged by type into three categories: Gallery content, Collections, Studio content
  • Search results are codified with appropriate asset type icons
  • Snippets will show the matching query pieces in bold 

Kapost Gallery Search in the Salesforce

When you embed the Kapost Gallery anywhere or install the Kapost Salesforce Gallery App, logged in users will have the ability to utilize an extension of Gallery Search. Use the Search All Content Bar at the top of the Gallery.

Global Search Logic

The Kapost global search code is built to deal with "stemming."

For example, "keeled" does bring up "keel" because the stem of "keeled" is "keel." On the other hand, "kee" is just a grouping of characters not related to "keel" so it is not matched.

  • The Search Logic will use natural English language processing to help make words more discoverable in our search. With that in mind, “kee” is not a word in English so it doesn’t know “kee” and “keel” are related based on English syntax. 

Search within Collections

Using regular search within a Gallery collection uses the same logic that Global Search does, but it limits the search to only content within the Collection being searched.

From within a Collection, sort your search results for the content in the Collection. Once you enter in a search term, your results will sort by relevancy by default and provide content relevant to your search term.

To filter your search results differently, choose an option from the drop-down menu next to the search area.
