I have pages within a site that use a query string to provide dynamic data to the user (http://<site>/pages/example.aspx?id=1).
I can get the content source to index these dynamic pages only if I create a rule which sets the root site (http://<site>/*) to 'include complex urls' and 'crawl sharepoint content as http content'. This is NOT acceptable as changing the crawling protocol
from SharePoint's to HTTP will prevent any metadata from being collected on the indexed items. The managed metadata feature is a critical component to our SharePoint applications.
To dispel any wondering of whether or not this is simply a configuration error on my part refer to
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointsearch/thread/4ff26b26-84ab-4f5f-a14a-48ab7ec121d5 . The issue mentioned is my exact problem but the solution is unusable as I mentioned before.
Keep in mind this is for an external publishing site and my search scope is being trimmed using content classes to only include documents/pages (STS_List_850 and STS_ListItem_DocumentLibrary). Creating a new web site content source and adding it to my scope
presents 2 problems: duplicate content in scope and no content class defining it that I know of.
What options do I have?
