Hi all,

I'm currently trying to figure out a way to get related articles (related to the current article that is) from the database. Normally I would run a match-search on titles, descriptions and keywords (with the current title, description and keywords) and if that didn't produce any hits I'd run a mysql fulltext-search.

Can't seem to figure out how to go about implementing this in SS.

Would someone be so kind to point me in the right direction ? ;-)

Kinda' Solved it.

There probably is a better way of doing it (by using the built in search engine for example) but I can't find any docs on it.

I didn't realize I could use Mysql's MATCH .. AGAINST in combination with data-objects.

So I ended up with :

DataObject::get("Page", "MATCH (Title, MenuTitle, Content, MetaTitle, MetaDescription, MetaKeywords) AGAINST ('$this->MetaKeywords')");
