Hi @lynne-benedict,

Open the search, set Search Type: Search entire posts.

In Search Phrase: enter the PDF file name or text file name.

Example: wpForo.pdf

Great, I am going to give it a try once I resolve the problem of not being able to attach PDF (opened ticket today)

@kylew I think I was being misunderstood. I am wondering about the search of the content of PDF

So if I attach PDF file named lecture.pdf and my PDF presentation talks about Python in its content, can WpForo find references to python via Search ?

@lynne-benedict,

wpForo Search can find by lecture.pdf, but it can't find via what's inside the PDF.
