Include externally linked PDFs in search?

We have somewhere between 500-1000 pdfs that are linked throughout our website to their physical location on the web server and would like them to be searchable (e.g. searching for membership form includes the pdf membership form in the results). The native search functionality only includes content created within Rise, so what is the best way to include all of those pdfs? I did try a search before posting, so I apologize if this has been addressed previously/ad nauseam.

user defined multi-instance table allow nulls

ok, have user defined multi-instance table and I need only one of the columns in the table to not allow nulls, but the other to allow nulls, but the table was created by imis to not allow nulls. the BO referencing the table for use by the panel in the staff view says to allow nulls, but of course getting error if I empty one of the fields out and save in the staff view. so how do I allow nulls in these fields?

Join Page - Only display options based on profiles County.

Essentially our membership system involves a member joining one of three options. Each of these options has it's own dues, determined by the County this person resides in.

We already have all California Counties setup as billing products in iMIS, and each billing product has special pricing to reflect it's three membership options.

My question is - how do I use data in an iMIS users account to determine what join options are available on the page?

Extraneous Name row added, with ID = a single quote

Has anyone ever run into IMIS going insane and inserting a row into the NAME table, with ID = one single quote, and the rest of the columns initialized to nulls / spaces / 0's except for Time_Stamp?

1. Does anyone know how to programmatically summon the Document Browser (shown when pressing "SELECT") in the Content Manager? I'd like to bring up that Document Browser dialog, select a content record, and then return that selected path to a textbox on an aspx page (any language will do)
2. Does anyone know how to programmatically redirect to an IMIS shortcut? (i.e. to a link like: @/siteFolder/Content Record)?

Manage customers - content in Desktop client does not display after User Credentials button clicked

When User Credentials is clicked in Customer Management, the Manage customers window opens but the right side of the pane is blank, i.e. no contents appear in the white pane. The only object which appears is a small scroll bar in the upper left corner of the white pane (directly beneath "Manage customers ...").

This problem has occurred ever since we upgraded from 15.x to Our deployment is exclusively through the iMIS Desktop client.

RiSE New layout Definitions Error

Has anybody ever seen this error when attempting to create new layout definitions in RiSE under Manage Content Layouts? When we attempt to edit or create a new layout definition, we get the following error:

Action failed (GetWindowProperties): Invalid web service call, missing value for parameter: ‘folder HierarchyKey’.

We are able to edit and create new content layouts on our test site located on the same server. Our test database was just restored from production ths week so I don't think there's an issue in the databse but a missing file somewhere on the server. I've tried SQL Profiler to see if I ccan get an idea of what it is looking for but haven't had an success.
