    Umbraco Examine PDF Search - only IndexType and NodeId appearing in index.


    I'm trying to get PDF searching working with UmbracoExamine.PDF. I've used it in the past with success, but for some reason I'm having difficulties to get it to work again now. I'm able to get an index to generate, but it only contains __IndexType and __NodeId fields, and no actual content from the PDF documents.

    Here's the ExamineSettings sections:

    <add name="PDFIndexer" type="UmbracoExamine.PDF.PDFIndexer, UmbracoExamine.PDF" extensions=".pdf" umbracoFileProperty="umbracoFile"/>
    <add name="PDFSearcher" type="UmbracoExamine.UmbracoExamineSearcher, UmbracoExamine" />

    ...and the Examine Index section:

    <IndexSet SetName="PDFIndexSet" IndexPath="~/App_Data/TEMP/ExamineIndexes/PDFIndexSet" />

    Is there anything that I'm missing? I installed UmbracoCms.UmbracoExamine.PDF via nuget, so dependencies should all be there?

    100 ever, an "uninstall -> install" process fixed this. Removing the DLLs and re-installing with Nuget, using the provided settings and index has done the trick here. Typical! :)

    Hi Ed, I'm having the same problem with only the node id showing up in the index, and I did the nuget uninstall & reinstall that you suggest - and it still shows only the node id field. Do you have any other ideas of what I can do to get the PDF file contents to be indexed?

    Hi Ed,

    How do we use the PdfSearcher on the partial view to search and retrieve results?

    Thanks, AJ
