You shouldn't even have to re-publish the page. The file should be removed when you delete it. How did you 'remove' the file?
Sorry for my late reply.
We are removing a document by selecting and press delete button in document repository. And we are using Truffler version 126.96.36.199.
I'm using epifind for search. I attched a document for a page and published it. then, I can see that document in search results.
I removed the document from the page and re-published again ( inorder to re-index the page) but in the search results, that document still showing up. when I click on the document, error is showing -"File or directory not found".
Re-publishing page is not enough to re-index that page ? Do I need to re-index whole site not to show that removed document in the search results ?
