I have a search index configured for the site and the page is actually returning search results, but only News and Events are in the results. There are no pages in the results although reading post responses elsewhere on search index issues it has been said that all pages are included in the search results by default. I've re-indexed it several times and given it plenty of time to finish. It doesn't have any errors and seems to complete the re-indexing without problem. I assumed at first that I needed to include "Content Items" in the scope of the search index, but again judging by responses to search index posts elsewhere this doesn't seem required to get regular pages indexed.
I've attached screen shots of my search index configuration and my results page. In the results page there should be many pages returned that have "lorem" in the content. All I'm getting is News & Events. I'm using Sitefinity 4.2 on Windows 7.
