Do any Collections have search capability within a Member Site?

Recommended Posts

I set up a Resource Library using the Blog Collection type inside my Member Site. Now that I have published my site, come to find out the search module doesn't work inside a Member Site (funny enough, when the site is on the SquareSpace built-in domain, this isn't an issue and search work great). I'm in a major pickle here as I've built out a 300+ post library and now it's not searchable (yes, filters in the archive blocks works). 

Does anyone know if other collection types are searchable within a Member Site? Or if there is a custom code work around for searching the blog post titles (only this needs to be searchable, nothing else!)? Thank you!!


PS - I can't share the URL since it's behind a member site paywall

Pages in Member Sites aren't indexed for site search. This is because the search features were built some time before Member Sites and don't have the technology required to work with them.

Unfortunately there isn't a workaround for this right now, and we're not expecting one to arrive any time soon.
