I tried adding the FileFilter line to the swish.conf file, and unfortunately
that only made things worse.
The problem that I am seeing is that while the indexing appears to be working
fine, when I do a search for
the files via swish.cgi, the only results that are listed are the index.swish
files. I have not made any
changes to the SWISH::Filter file, which I assume is
is going on, and what do I need to do to correct this?

Only if not using spider.pl's default config. The default config in
spider.pl automatically filters pdf files (if xpdf programs are found in
By default I mean passing "default <url>" to spider.pl -- the "default"
tells the spider to use a built-in config. Look at spider.pl in an
editor to see that config -- and how it uses SWISH::Filter.
Otherwise, if you don't pass a parameter to spider.pl it will look for
SwishSpiderConfig.pl (IIRC). The example SwishSpiderConfig.pl file also
has examples of how to use SWISH::Filter.
Basically, you default a content filter in spider.pl that passes the
content and the content-type to SWISH::Filter.
That make sense?
