  1. install mia3_search extension through "composer require mia3/mia3_search"

  4. insert search plugin to search page
  5. you're done, start by indexing using the command controller or setup the scheduler.


manual indexing

you can use the ```index:update`` command to manually start the indexing process

./vendor/bin/typo3 mia3search:index

periodic indexing

you can use the scheduler to schedule a periodic execution of the index:update command



mia3_search is based on mia3/saku a php package to provide a common interface for multiple search backends.

Typo3MySQLAdapter (default)

plugin.tx_mia3search_search {
   settings {
      adapter = \MIA3\Mia3Search\Adapter\Typo3MySQLAdapter

ElasticSearchAdapter was removed from mia3/saku because of outdated dependencies

excluding content from the index

if you need to exclude something from the index you can simple add a class to the containing html element in your template. anything tagged with the class .mia3-search-unindexed will be removed from the content before being indexed. Instead of adding that class to your html you can also specify additional css selectors in the $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXTCONF']['mia3_search']['indexingBlacklist'] array in your ext_localconf.php.

Content processing

the content is already heavily processed before being put into the index:

  • cssFilter: filter out any html that is matched by the indexingBlacklist selectors
  • ensureWhitespaceBetweenTags: make sure, there is at least one whitespace character between words, even, if they'd be bunched together after stripping the html tags
  • scriptTags: remove all inline script tags, including their content
  • styleTags: remove all inline style tags, including their content
  • stripTags: strip all html tags
  • lineBreaks: remove all line breaks

every content processor can be disabled or changed be unsetting or editing it in the $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXTCONF']['mia3_search']['pageContentFilters'] array. and you can add any additional processors you need as well.
