Hello,

I have the following problem:

First of all: I enabled the fulltextsearch feature.
Now I have many different Pagetypes like:

class PartnerHolder extends Page
{
   static $singular_name = 'Partner';
   static $plural_name = 'Partner';
   
   static $has_many = array (
      'Partner' => 'Partner'
   );
   
}

Partner.php

class Partner extends Member
{
   static $singular_name = 'Partner';
   static $plural_name = 'Partner';
   static $db = array (
      'Detail' => 'Text',
      'Detail2' => 'Text'

   );
//....
}

Now I want that the search includes the two fields (Detail, Detail2). Is there a way to do this?

Well more specifically you want to make Detail and Detail2 on the dataobject searchable rather than the page since that'll already be indexed. My recommended way of adding functionality like this to SilverStripe is to use the sphinx search module. http://silverstripe.org/sphinx-module/ has a lot more features and is much more configurable than the default search engine.
