Extending Solr indexation

How to index page blocks contents

If all your text content is written in block nodes instead of reachable pages, you should index them into your page Solr documents to improve your search engine relevancy.

You can use the NodesSourcesIndexingEvent::class event to enhance your node indexing data before it’s persisted into Solr engine (especially collection_txt field):


namespace Themes\MyTheme\Event;

use GeneratedNodeSources\NSGroupBlock;
use GeneratedNodeSources\NSPage;
use Pimple\Container;
use RZ\Roadiz\Core\ContainerAwareInterface;
use RZ\Roadiz\Core\ContainerAwareTrait;
use RZ\Roadiz\Core\Entities\NodesSources;
use RZ\Roadiz\Core\Events\NodesSources\NodesSourcesIndexingEvent;
use RZ\Roadiz\Core\SearchEngine\SolariumFactoryInterface;
use RZ\Roadiz\Core\SearchEngine\SolariumNodeSource;
use Symfony\Component\EventDispatcher\EventSubscriberInterface;

final class PageIndexingEventSubscriber implements EventSubscriberInterface, ContainerAwareInterface
    use ContainerAwareTrait;

    public function __construct(Container $container)
        $this->container = $container;

     * @inheritDoc
    public static function getSubscribedEvents()
        return [
            NodesSourcesIndexingEvent::class => ['onIndexing'],

    public function onIndexing(NodesSourcesIndexingEvent $event)
        $nodeSource = $event->getNodeSource();
        if ($nodeSource instanceof NSPage || $nodeSource instanceof NSGroupBlock) {
            $assoc = $event->getAssociations();

             * Fetch every non-reachable blocks
             * to gather their text content in master page document
            $children = $this->container['nodeSourceApi']->getBy([
                'node.nodeType.reachable' => false,
                'node.visible' => true,
                'translation' => $nodeSource->getTranslation(),
                'node.parent' => $nodeSource->getNode(),

            /** @var NodesSources $child */
            foreach ($children as $child) {
                /** @var SolariumNodeSource $solarium */
                $solarium = $this->container[SolariumFactoryInterface::class]->createWithNodesSources($child);
                // Fetch all fields array association AS sub-resources (i.e. do not index their title)
                $childAssoc = $solarium->getFieldsAssoc(true);
                $assoc['collection_txt'] = array_merge(


Then register this subscriber to your event-dispatcher:

# In your theme ServiceProvider…
$container->extend('dispatcher', function (EventDispatcherInterface $dispatcher, Container $c) {
    $dispatcher->addSubscriber(new PageIndexingEventSubscriber($c));
    return $dispatcher;
