I’ve not used the Metatags and Description idea (I took what I saw first). Anyway, I needed a title and a hash link to address the DataObject among a list of other DataObjects in a long Category page. If you use this idea, I guess you will only be able to redirect visitors to the page containing your DataObject and not to the DataObject itself.

Hej Willr,

I'm using v3.1-rc1 and the problem that the indexes won't be added seems to still exist. Any news on that?

Thanks in advance.

We had a chat about this on IRC recently, you can't do custom fields with the built in Search (yes very poor!) if you want custom fields or objects you'll have to use one of the more advanced search modules (like the fulltextsearchable module).
