@klaatu, can you SHOW your results? As in “Look, Sergey, here is my L17 content on a server, 3 pages, and here I run Zoom to crawl it and here it says ‘5 pages crawled’, and here when I launch the search.html it can actually find the text in all 5 pages”. Because my exprience is that IT DOES NOT DO THAT.
I repeat, Zoom DOES NOT render pages, whether in spider mode from web or in local mode. So it cannot see any content created in Lectora 17, because the HTML file is empty and all texts are in JS.
For this exact same reason, it will not spider-crawl your title except the one page your point it to, because there are no LINKS in HTML between the pages. All links are generated at run time and they are not HTML links, they are JS functions that would be unrecognizable and inaccessible to a crawler.
I’ve been over this a few times now, so until somebody actually _demonstrates_ how Zoom SE can successfully crawl and index L17/LO courses, I will spend my time in other threads.
“I will spend my time in other threads.” Sounds like a good idea, Sergey. It’s not worth popping a stitch over. If I have time to work on it I will of course post something. It’s something I find interesting but low on my list of priorities.
Any luck on this? I’m in the same boat. My company purchased the upgrade to Zoom 7 and it’s useless with Lectora’s version of HTML. The solution to copy and paste everything is completely out of the question as that will take days. It’s aggravating when Lectora makes changes that essentially breaks everything.
I never used a crawl due to pages having buttons instead of text links. I would just output to folders on my hard drive, run it in offline mode, then replace the directory with a base url. Worked for years.

the code you wrote on GitHub is one of the best search engines for Lectora. It’s working on every platform or environment. There is possible to have one change? I am fighting this issue and I can’t make it working.
Instead of showing this.url on the link to the page (which will display pageName.html), I want to display page title as seen in the cTOC of the hidden TOC.
