guide how to enable search on files



I need to allow users to search PDF , powerpoint and other files which was uploaded to the document folder.

this files might have reference from pages in the site but might NOT have refernces from the site.

The user must be able to search this files regardless the fact that they have or dont have refernces from the site.

How can it be done ?

Hi Arik.

Have you read the last post by Nicklas? If you are using R2, you can not use the manager anymore.
