    Indexing Custom Properties with Examine PDFIndexer

    Hi,

    I have a PDF index set up which is correctly adding any PDFs I have in the media section.

    However, custom properties are not being indexed. For example, if I set a property on the File media type called "Author", this isn't included in the index (I've confirmed this using Luke).

    Is this by design, are custom properties just not indexed? Or have I missed something in my configuration?

    Thanks in adance,

    Robert

    I solved my own problem, you have to set up each custom property as an IndexUserField in the ExamineIndex.config, it all works well now.

    Robert,

    The media indexer i wrote will out of the box rip all meta embedded in the pdf and put it into the index see http://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/cogumbracoexaminemediaindexer

    Thanks Ismail, I've actually already had a play with your media indexer and it looks great.

    The problem was with Umbraco properties rather than metadata embedded in the PDF, but it turned out that I just missed a configuration setting!

    I can confirm it does, as long as you have set them up as IndexUserFields in the config!
