I got two different dataobjects (projects, staff) not related to each other. Both got titles and decriptions. So i wanna make these titles and desc. searchable by the silverstripe buildin fulltextsearch. How to connetc the DO and the search. Despite of searching the forum i found no solution. Is there a tutorial or a nice snippet to get this done?
There are some threads elsewhere, try searching a bit more, but it’s a difficult subject. I have only managed to make it work, and with some limitations, thanks to the custom_search module:
A promising new module has been recently published, but I haven’t used it yet:
I've used the sphinx module with some success. Little bit of a mission to get up and working. I used Lucene for doc.silverstripe.org and that seemed to work really well - http://code.google.com/p/lucene-silverstripe-plugin/.
Offtopic: Are there any plans to 'upgrade' the Fulltextsearch functionality in SS3?
This module is the start of the new full text layer https://github.com/silverstripe-labs/silverstripe-fulltextsearch. Will be refined over time but that module will get the bulk of anything full text search related.
Just for the records. I've used Arams fine module [url=http://www.ssbits.com/tutorials/2012/dataobject-as-pages-the-module/]Dataobject as pages [/url]. It contains a built-in-searchfunctionality. Nevertheless thanks a lot for your help and additional infos.
