possible bug with search in blogs for blogs visible only to admin

HEllo,

I am using Mojoportal 2.4.0.9, .NET 4.5, SQLServer, Windows Server 2008.

I added a blog and restricted the visibility to only Admins (since we would like to use it as an internal exchange platform).  However I see when I tested the search, it never returns results for this blog (even though the text is in the main part of the blog article).  3 other blogs in the site work with the search.  These are all publicly viewable, so I think it might be a visibility issue.

I also tried reindexing the search. Again, search works everywhere except in the admin blog.  From reading some posts in the Forum, I see that the search should support the restricted visibility.

thanks in advance for any insights!

content locked down to only admins role is a special case and is not added to the search index at all.

you can use Content Administrators role or a custom role to protect content while still including it in the search index.

Hello,

thanks for your follow-up .  I switched role to content administrator and the search works.

Regards,
