Adding content type in the FileType RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    When we are doing search there is a refiner called FileType, which will display the file extensions. Is it possible to include a custom content types in that group of File Types?

    Thanks in advance,

    Prakash

  • Hi,

    What content type do you want to display in the Result Type?

    SharePoint 2013 is not supported all file extensions in that group of File Types.

    If you want to display content type that SharePoint 2013 doesn’t support, you can add a custom refinement web part to your search results page in SharePoint 2013.

    This is reference about how to add custom web part:

    Thanks,
