Many sites combine Discourse and Wordpress. We use Wordpress to store static info like ebooks and model guides, as well as user photo albums.
Would it be a huge job to extend the discourse search to include the Wordpress site? Perhaps this would be better as a plugin.
What I’m observing is that someone asks “I tried searching for info on how to do job X, but didn’t find anything. How do I do this?” on the forum. If they’re lucky, one of the old hands will reply “There’s a photo essay on how to do it at Y” which points to a URL on our static site.
I can reply, or add “Don’t forget to search the static site” to all the guides and FAQs I want. If Search could also include hits from the static site then that would be more streamlined.
