[EP-tech] Re: Question about full text search (Documents in Advanced Search page)



Have you tried to reindex one of the missing items to see if it made a difference?  Check the error_log whilst it reindexes in case eprints is having some other issue with opening the pdf (we sometimes have issues with e.g. apostrophes in the filenames).

Hi again,

Does anyone have any idea why these documents are not showing up in the search results?

Any suggestions would really be appreciated.  I'm at a loss as to why it's not returning results that clearly have the search term in the pdf (and the converted text document).
