Bug Description

In Admin menu -> Site options -> General settings, there is the option to turn on the portfolio search. This places the "Search my portfolio" on some pages.

It should be investigated what this searches. Is it just pages or also content on pages?

If it is just your own pages, then we won't need it anymore as we can search for them on "Pages and collections". It could then be removed.

If it searches more than pages, collections, descriptions, tags, then we will decide whether to keep it or remove.

"Pages and Collections" search has capacity to find tags, titles, descriptions used on pages but doesn't seem to find things on artefacts such as uploaded files etc... for example, have an Image Block on a page named "dog.jpg" then search for "dog" on "Pages and Collections" search and it won't return a result. Do the same thing with My Portfolio and it will return the result. "Pages and Collections" doesn't seem to find tags that are on artefacts only and not on the page (even though both are displayed in the same area "tags" under a page's title)

 I think the "My Portfolio" search is searching artefacts and not views- it will query titles, tags and descriptions for artefacts, for example you have a page titled "Apple" that is blank... "My Portolio" is searched with the word 'Apple', it does not return results. You make a new page and put an artefact like an Image Block "apple.jpg" or a Notes block with 'apple' in there or you upload a file with like 'apple.pdf', perform the search again and it will find these results.
