Web crawler – extract author and date

Hi

A have read the guide for a html property extractor where meta data content like author is extracted. Can I map the metadata author value directly to the portals “modified_by”-property ?

And the same goes for a timestamp – Can I map a metadata timestamp directly to the portals “modified” – property?

The reason is that I need to craw a intranet where the content is located in a dB, and I need to display the author and timestamp in a search results

Kind regards

Stubbe

    Hi!

    It is possible to create the "modifiedby" property, but not the "modified" property.

    The latter is a property of type DATE and with HTML property extractors you can only create STRING properties.

    To create the "modifiedby" property just create an HTML property with

    - Namespace: http://sapportals.com/xmlns/cm

    - Property Name: modifiedby

    - Select First META: <the tag where you store your author>

    If you don't mind to develop a small property filter you could store the date as string in a special property and

    create the "modified" property on the fly from it in the filter.

    Kind regards, Dirk
