Text Reader Setting

The Text Reader setting is important if you are going to be indexing external documents. Hummingbird SearchServer provides text readers that allow you to access documents stored in most formats. Hummingbird additionally has a text filter that reads and indexes documents written in HTML. If you have file formats that are not supported by the provided text reader, it is possible to build custom text readers. For information on creating custom text readers, see the Hummingbird documentation.

NOTE:  Under most circumstances, the default text reader can be used. In this case, if no text reader setting is entered, this default text reader will be used.
