Its seems as if search on widget don't present the same result as search on the community website.
Where can we find the limitations and search rules of widget vs. website?

Also, search on widget ignores all articles.

Hi Ofer,

You can find some details about the search on widgets here. Widgets run off legacy search, so the results that are surfaced will be different for that reason. The search that is used in the community now is better and improved. Because widgets use legacy search, there are some new additions to the platform (such as articles as you mentioned) that will not appear.

Thank you Tashina.
We'll start converting articles to questions form in order to allow widget search.

Any prediction on whether you plan to align widget search with website?

I've just done that too ... would be great to get this updated so search widgets really do search everything :)
