Clicking on re-index , begin the process of repopulating all the indexable content of the site. The page provides feedback on its ongoing progress at the top.

Initially all the expired entries in the index are deleted, then the index is run over pages posts and files. This populates a table with the following columns:

  • # - Number of the entry
  • URL - the page, post or file name

  • Message - any error message output during the re-indexing process
