Reply To: Search content of PDF
Honestly, so far so good. We have Relevanssi installed, but not “active”. I haven’t tried completely uninstalling it yet.
Two key factors with WP Search – it indexing automatically and it digs into the PDFs (that it can) and puts the text in a database field it creates and makes it indexed.
I did have to do two custom child-theme code snippets to make the “loop” work with excerpts, but otherwise…it was pretty easy. So far though I haven’t done anything with forums or user searches.
