Searching results not displaying expected topics


(Dean Taylor) #1

Continuing the discussion from Missing English text `[en.admin.embedding.embed_classname_whitelist]`:

  1. Search meta for embed_classname_whitelist

Expected result

Search results should include the following topics:

Actual result

This is probably worthy of a tag to keep search-index-related topics together, but I’m too lazy to set it up.
