  • Feature suggestion: XML comment tags in .desc files

    I have a use case for a .desc file "template" distributed to end-users of Zoom search results, to be copied and completed by end-users and returned to me for files that are known to exist but not currently found in Zoom search results because they cannot be indexed directly for various reasons.

    I would like to provide instructions enclosed in XML comment tags directly in the .desc file, but naturally would not want Zoom to index the comments.

    Example:

    <title>See instructions</title>
    <meta name="description" content="See instructions">
    <meta name="ZOOMWORDS" content="keyword1, keyword2, keyword3">

    <!-- INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Copy the proxy description template file and redact the file name to exactly match the actual target file to be indexed.

    2. Complete the proxy file tags as follows:
    TITLE: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
    DESCRIPTION: Suspendisse ante nisi, condimentum eget molestie at, elementum quis diam.
    ZOOMWORDS: Morbi semper, erat nec dapibus vulputate, nulla elit accumsan mauris, vitae pulvinar mauris mauris ut tellus.

    3. Send the completed .desc file to abc@defgh.
    -->

    Would you consider this for a future Zoom version?

    I suspect HTML style comments are already ignored in XML .desc files.
    Let me check.

      Only recognizable meta tags should be retrieved from .DESC files. So your use case above should not be a problem.
      Let us know if there's a specific scenario or configuration that isn't working as expected.
