Search ASPX pages from sub site in SharePoint (MOSS 2007)

Search ASPX pages from sub site in SharePoint (MOSS 2007)

In my site collection I have one root site and 2 other sub sites. I have configured Search on site collection and crawl works successfully. Now when I try to search contents from search center results from root site return where content from sub sites are not returned in search result. I amazed and do lot of search on net finally I come to know for each sub site we need to turn on index all .ASPX pages to crawl the content of that ASPX.

Follow the steps to enable sub site ASPX pages in crawl.

Go to sub site > click site settings > in site administrator there is one option called search visibility

Now click on this search visibility option and click on radio button allow this web to appear in search result? To yes

And middle radio button of second option that is "Always index all ASPX pages on this site"

Crawl the content again. It will work for you

Thanks. Your comments and suggestion are appreciable
