I've got a website with a few sections e.g:

Section 1
+- article 11
+- article 12
+- article 13
Section 2
+- article 21
+- article 22
+- article 23

How to configure a search engine to search only in "section 2" tree?

Thank you for your help.

You need to checkout getResults function in AdvancedSearchForm.php and the searchEngine function in SearchForm.php

If you were to develop your own getResults coupled with an extended searchEngine function function you could specify a variable to limit which parts of the SiteTree you search.

A nice idea, if it was a large site might be to provide a drop down with your search function which is populated by the SiteTree to allow for users to get a targeted search.
