Hi everybody,

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?

Thanks for help. Pipifix

Hi!

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:

Hope it helps,
Juan

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/.

Thanks a lot for your responses, Willr and Juanitou.

Lucene does'nt seemt to be a solution for my client. So i tried the silverstriep-searcher-module. but there is a sql-error. http://www.silverstripe.org/all-other-modules/show/19083#post311812

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.

Hello again.

Just for the records. I've used Arams fine module Dataobject as pages . It contains a built-in-searchfunctionality. Nevertheless thanks a lot for your help and additional infos.
