    Hello,

    Is it possible to search / find by code a product that can be found in a digital catalog in pdf format? If so, how should it be done?

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Dan

    Hi,

    Well, the plugin can search and return attachments as results by their contents, as long as the items are in the media library. This may not be possible though, as I assume the PDF files in this case are probably not media attachment files.

    Yes, the pdf file can be found in the media library.
    It is a catalog with over 100 pages. Can the plugin find the product code indicating the page it is on?

    Well, it could possibly find the text in the PDF file, but it would return that file as the result – not the page where it was placed to.

    It would be great if you could implement such a function

    Well, yes, but it is probably not possible – as there needs to be some sort of a connection between the post and the media file in the database. And if the uploaded file is not an attachment (uploaded to that page as a media attachment), then there is no way to do it.
