Search, Permissions, & Media

by C.W. Holeman III


All modules show up in Global Search with the exceptions of:

  • Deleted and Inactive Modules.
  • Modules to which the user does not have permissions.


Media items are only visible in search results if the media is contained in an Active Module, to which the user doing the search has permission to access, and the media is Approved. Note that Super Admins will see media in search results regardless of module permissions.

Media that is uploaded by admin users will display under the Media search results section.

Media that is uploaded by non-admin users will display under the User Contributed search results section as a User-contributed Module.

All Media Items will be displayed with their associated module(s) listed under the Media Item entry. If there are multiple instances of the same Media Item in multiple modules, the Media Item entry will be displayed once and a consolidated list of Modules will be displayed under the Media Item.
