Indexing PDF allready in?

I have installed the DocMan Version 2.02 but I can't search for text inside a PDF document. There are post around the so called Smart Search, but I don't have an idea what it is all about. Any hint, or will it be implemented later?

Hi Reto, Joomla comes with two search systems, basic search and smart search. DOCman can search based on keywords in the document title and description using both.

The difference between Basic Search and Smart Search is explained in following blog post. Other use full links :

- How to use Smart Search in Joomla
- Smart Search FAQ's

At the moment DOCman 2 is not capable yet of indexing PDF files. Our first step in this process was to add support for smart search. The ability to also index the contents of the file is a next step.

The specific feature request for this can be found here : 33-search-inside-documents Feel free to add your comments and vote for this feature. Features with most votes get priority.

Does that help you ?
