Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually. If you install this plugin manually, make sure it is installed in lib/plugins/searchresultswithpath/ - if the folder is called different it will not work!


See the plugin in action here.

This Plugin lets you display the path of a Page when you have “use_headings” set to “navigation” or “both” to use the first Heading of a Page for its Name. It does nothing if you have navigation set to “content” or “none”.

Lets say you have the following pagestructure:

  • meta_animal (A Meta-Animal )
  • creatures (Creatures)
    • animal1 (First Animal )
    • oceanic
      • animal2 (Second Animal )
    • terran
      • start ( Terran Animals )
      • animal3 (Third Animal )

Searching for animal will get you a search result that looks like this:

With default settings:

  • A Meta-Animal
  • First Animal [Creatures]
  • Second Animal [creatures:oceanic]
  • Third Animal [Terran Animals]

When use_ns_heading is turned off:

  • A Meta-Animal
  • First Animal [creatures]
  • Second Animal [creatures:oceanic]
  • Third Animal [creatures:terran]

Configuration and Settings

There are two Settings you can set via the Configuration GUI:

Key Description default
use_ns_heading Similar to use_headings: Use the first Heading of the namespace or namespace:start page as namespacename on
show_path_only_as_heading Only display the path if the first heading will be used as name - Omits displaying if a ID would be shown (this option gets ignored if use_ns_heading is turned off) off
