Hi!
I'm very interested about SilverStripe CMS and I have one question, I read the fallowing sentence at packtpub.com:

"...It also deploys content through RSS and full text search, including searching of PDF's and Word documents."

Does It means that SS searches inside PDF's documents' content?
If so, is there any tutorial explaining how to do that?

Thanks!

Technically it is if you have some fields for meta-data, like keywords for each document you upload. However, physically searching through Word or PDF files doesn't seem possible, or at least at the moment. That's AFAIK however, I could be completely wrong.

Anyone else know?

Cheers,
