After selecting Image Index from the Image Elements section of the Element Gallery dialog, clicking Edit Filter or Render Properties options from the Element menu opens the Image Index Properties dialog.
This dialog displays the filter panel based on what was last saved.
Pick from the following options to select filtering criteria image index results.
Both Standard and Advanced Properties give you the option of limiting the number of child subsites to search. Use this feature to increase relevance and/or reduce the processing load for subsites with many children and pages.
If you choose Match any of these keywords, you can either enter specific terms or click the Choose button to select one or more CommonSpot keywords to use as filter criteria.
If you choose Match any of the current page's keywords, CommonSpot returns all images whose metadata matches CommonSpot standard or SEO keywords.Important Note: By default Page and Image Index keyword searches are case-sensitive. CommonSpot includes a servervars flag that allows you to override the default and make them non-case sensitive. Optionally add the following to your servervars file to enable non-case-sensitive searching:
Click on the Advanced Tab to view the Advanced Expression Builder, as displayed below. Many of the fields on the Standard tab are replaced with fields for setting criteria that must be met before returning results. Criteria can include custom metadata and complex selectors.
In the Advanced options, use the normal expression builder to select a field on the left-hand side of the equation and compare it to a fixed value on the right-hand side. You can limit results to exclude or display images that match specific criteria as shown above, or set custom criteria. See Dynamic Filter for more information on using this dialog.
Alternatively, clicking the expression control on the right-hand side displays the Enter ColdFusion Expression dialog, as shown below, for comparing the field with the contents of a ColdFusion variable at page load time. When CommonSpot renders the page containing the Image Index Element, the current value of the ColdFusion variable is evaluated.
See Custom Render Handlers for more information.
Click the Switch to Standard button to return to the Standard view. Click Save to keep your advanced filtering selections. Review the results of the filtering process, and optionally click Clear to remove your selections.
