    Hi, we're using Microsoft's Search tool to index/crawl our Sitefinity site. But it looks like we need to add a filter to allow it to search the PDFs that get uploaded into the documents library because they get renamed with .ashx. Do you guys have that filter already done?

    Hi Noel,

    There are two options that I can see:

    You can use the file system to store your files where the extension of the PDFs is not changed.
    Another option is uploading the files through Sitefinity interface and keep them with the original extensions - How to use the real extensions for the items in the Images and Documents module
