Searching for content within expand macro

Is there a way for the titles of your expand macros to appear in a confluence search, not just the content of the expand? Additionally, when something is searched for is there a way for it to be automatically expanded instead of the search bringing you to a page of closed expand macros where you have no knowledge of where what you're looking for may be?

Hi @katherine.smith4

I am afraid the answer for both of your questions is No. The title of your Expand macro doesn't show the page results on searching. When you search for the content within the macro, you see the page in the search results. But when you navigate you do not see the search macro expanded automatically.

Here is the ticket with Atlassian where you might want to add your vote - CONFSERVER-27077

Here is another community question where a possible solution is suggested. Please take a look - 294206

Hope this helps!



This is the worst kind of feature there is. It becomes the pages entirely useless as critical information buried inside the collapsed section will not be searchable. Why is there such feature in the first place? Authors of pages may not understand such implications and blindly use it.
