I have a strange problem where the MS Word documents my documemt libraries are not being indexed. When i look at the crawl log i can see that the crawl is indexing the libraries themselves but not any of the documents within them.
I have checked the following setting and it is set to Yes: Library settings > General Settings > Advanced Settings > Allow items from this document library to appear in search results?
I have also added the 'Default content access account' to the members group of the site (as I want to also index drafts). The documents not being indexed are a mixture of checked in and drafts.
It might be useful to know that the sites containing the document libararies use the Team Site template, the site collection has publishing turned on. Everything was created programatically.
I'm pulling my hair out with this so any suggestions of what i can check or how i can approach this issue would be greatly appreciated - I have only been working with SharePoint for 2 months so I'm still learning.
