Advice on Searching Documents


Good Morning,

Looking to create a page that uses the episerver search. However it needs to search a list of documents on the page.

For example


Link to Document

Document Description


Link to Document

Document Description


etc etc...


What would be the best way to approach this. Does the EPiServer Search look for documents? Or could I specify it to search the Document link title as a field?

Many Thanks.

You specific the directorys thad you would like to search with the searchdatasource. You can have a look in the alloy demo package on how they perform seach in files. 

If you like to add metadata to files you can change the filesummary.config in the root of your website so that it matches the data the editors would like to add and for you to index.
