FS#1097 media search OR search plugin
I did not find an existing feature request, so here comes mine:
I would love to see a possibility to search through the contents of attached media files, especially PDF files, probably also MS/OpenOffice files.
PDF would be absolutely enough for me.
This could be realized using a search plugin (I do not know whether it is currently possible to implement search plugins?). Alternatively it could be a core function.
What do you think?
The Google Search Plugin does what you asked for:
as far as I understand google search plugin, there are 2 preconditions:
1. my wiki needs access to google (which is not the case) and
2. google needs to "see" and index my wiki.
Since my wiki lives in an intranet, google cannot index my contents.
Am I wrong with that?
There are now action hooks for the search, so a media search could be added as plugin.
plugin wishes are now collected in the wishlist forum, please reopen there
