When referencing a Coveo Administration Console search page in a Sitecore item, add ARIA landmark attributes to that search page through its Code View in the Interface Editor.
When assembling Coveo for Sitecore Hive renderings to build a search interface from the ground up, add ARIA landmark attributes at the rendering level, in the
.cshtml view file. To ensure your changes don’t get overwritten during a Coveo for Sitecore upgrade, follow the Coveo for Sitecore rendering duplication procedure.
Never edit out-of-the-box Coveo for Sitecore rendering presentation items and view files directly. Always edit duplicates.
