Turn off word highlighting in search

Postby aharper12 on Wed Nov 20, 2019 7:54 am

Hi everyone,

We are using HTML5 outputs in Flare, and one of our stakeholders does not like that when you search, Flare 'highlights' the word(s) you search for and opens any accordion sections in corresponding articles to show that searched-for term.

Is there a way to turn either of these features off? Right now, we are looking at just making the highlight transparent so it seems like it is turned off.. are there any other alternatives?

TIA!

It sounds like you're using HTML5 Tripane output, which has default colors to highlight search results. In the HTML5 Tripane output, you can set this value in the skin editor, with the Search Highlight style under the Search Results section.

HTML5 top-nav and side-nav are different. Result terms are not highlighted by default but you can set them to be. In HTML5 top-nav and side-nav output, you can set this value in the CSS for the first 10 different search terms, for each term found in a single search. You'll find the values in the CSS Editor, under the span tag (as SearchHighlight and SearchHighlight1-9).

For details, check out Flare's online help: Customizing the Highlight Color for Search Hits.

I hope that helps,

Yes! Thank you Jeff, that helps.

Do you know if there is a way to change HOW Flare chooses words to highlight.... For example, I would think it should be possible to highlight only partial words when the search terms has more than X characters... ?
Also - do you know how we can remove the icon from the skin, now, that shows the ability to turn highlight on/off, since we have made it transparent?

Thanks!
