Edit SearchText and SearchTitle on indexing from RSS connector



Is there a´n event or other methods to manipulate what data writen to SearchText, SearchTitel etc. when indexing from a RSS connector?

We have a hard time doing any kind of manipulation of the data inexed from a RSS connector both on search and on idexing.

Any idées?

Hi Jesper 

You may be able to add use an extension method for the rss entity which will allow you to manipulate the field and add it as a custom field in the index which you can use. Information about this here:

It would be great if we could use conventions to call a extention method like:

ContentIndexer.Instance.Conventions.ForInstancesOf<RssContent>().IncludeField(x => x.extentionMethod());

But RSSContent doesn't inherit from IContentData and can therefore not be used in this way.

Why EpiServer has chosen to not make RSSContent and WebContent inherit from IContent is a mystery to me.

Is there an other way than conventions to call extentionmethods on indexing?
