Reference field types, such as taxonomy term fields, paragraph fields, or plain entity reference fields, refer to a completely separate entity within the site. This makes search configuration complicated as the typical scope of a search crawl is on a per-node (really a per-entity) basis. Fortunately there are known strategies to index these fields with ease.
In this tutorial, we'll:
- Describe why reference types pose a particular challenge to indexing
- Discuss the importance of display modes in indexing
- Highlight how the Rendered HTML Output field can be used to index paragraphs
By the end of this tutorial you should be able to add reference fields to your Search API Index and allow users to search their contents in the correct context.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug.

Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
