SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My search crawl errors out on a gantt chart web part in our team sites.

The error message is The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when attempting to download the item.

I have verified that my search user account can login to the page and see the content.

Any ideas?

check the crawl log for further info. Also check if ULS log has some relevant info and add to post –  Anders Rask Sep 30 '11 at 16:07
    
that was from the crawl log. portal.inghamisd.org/projects/… tasks/gantt.aspx The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when attempting to download the item. –  Bryan Smith Sep 30 '11 at 17:45
    
I can click on the error and open it with my search user account –  Bryan Smith Sep 30 '11 at 17:56

You should be able to create a generic search rule using wild cards in your search administration to exclude them all. Creating a rules to exclude *://*gantt.aspx should exclude all gantt.aspx pages from your search.

I used this and the crawl worked fine.
