Indexing the Base Folder metadata

I've got an Index Block that is indexing the Base Folder of a site. However, when pointing at the Base Folder, it doesn't actually include the Base Folder (and its metadata) in the index, and it just has the system-pages and system-folders that are in the Base Folder inside the system-index-block XML.

Is there a way to get the metadata of the Base Folder itself to be picked up by an Index Block?

    Update: It seems that it is possible to get the Base Folder metadata by using the "Start at the current page and include its folder hierarchy" option: http://cl.ly/image/3l072K1K1O2j

    None of the other 3 options render the Base Folder metadata. This solution will work for me. :)

    Hey there,

    I was just about to mention that to you to see if you could verify. It sounds like you're running into the behavior that is mentioned in this post. If you look through there, you'll see that it links to this known bug. There are also some comments on the issue as to why this particular problem will likely not be addressed.

    I'm glad to hear that you're able to use the option that does provide this information. Let me know if you have any further questions regarding the issue.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, changing how those options indexed would likely cause a lot of problems. Maybe, if there was enough desire for it, additional options could be added for 1,3 and 4 that would be "with Base Folder too".
