No replies - and still can't work this out.

I have tried working with plugin.tx_indexedsearch.search.rootPidList
but can't get it working. The whole site search works fine, but the
page where I try to limit using this does not return and results.

Having checked the manual for search.rootPidList:
"A list of integer which should be root-pages to search from. .....
Notice that by "root-page" we mean a website root defined by a
TypoScript Template! If you just want to search in branches of your
site, use the possibility of searching in levels."

I am not sure therefore whether this is the right way as setting
multiple 'root' templates significantly disrupts things like menu
starting points, TemplaVoila temapltes etc.

I would like to know what the manual means by "If you just want to
search in branches of your site, use the possibility of searching in

I have also tried using

This gets closer, but also returns results from other sections at the
same level in other parts of the website. The problem I think here is
that my search page is at the 3rd level:
 - Level 1
  - Level 2
   - Level 3

I think that plugin.tx_indexedsearch._DEFAULT_PI_VARS.sections only
works to level 2.

Any ideas gratefully received.
