Searching capabilities for pdf files in the site

Hello.

I am working on this site

Home Page

We have Education Page below that has list of newsletter pdfs for customers to download.

Education

When I do search, it only search within pages and does not pick up a word from pdf.

Do you know how to improve the search so it will pick up a word customers searching from pdf newsletters too?

Thanks in the advance.

    Hi Satoko,

    Unfortunately, the WordPress search isn’t able to search inside of pdf files. You’ll need to find a plugin that allows for this – we’re not familiar with any plugins that allow for this so we’re unable to make a direct suggestion at this time.

    It’s a commercial plugin, but SearchWP is one option for this. It’ll search within PDFs.
