So I'm using a similar query to what CodeGuerilla posted:

$results = DataObject::get('Product',
"Title LIKE '%".$this->searchEntry."%' ".
"OR Brand LIKE '%".$this->searchEntry."%' ".
"OR PartNumber LIKE '%".$this->searchEntry."%' ".
"OR MetaTitle LIKE '%".$this->searchEntry."%' ".
"OR MetaDescription LIKE '%".$this->searchEntry."%' ".
"OR FIND_IN_SET('".trim($this->searchEntry)."', `MetaKeywords`) > 0", "Title ASC", NULL, "{$SQL_start},".Page::$resultsPerPage);

with an additional AND clause like: AND (ClassName = 'Lorem' OR ClassName = 'Ipsum')

Everything works great, but I would like to enhance the query:

So let's say class 'Lorem' has a child class 'LoremChild'. I would like to modify the query so that it returns 'Lorem' items where any of it's children also have Title LIKE OR Brand LIKE, etc. I don't want the actual child item to be returned in the query, only the parent 'Lorem' item. Any help on this query is greatly appreciated!

Hi banal, I know this is an old post, but hoping you could help with your CustomSearch function.

It seems to me that you are specifically excluding Files by not including them in the classes array:

protected $classesToSearch = array("SiteTree");

Is that the case? I've been trying to exclude files from the site search, but with no luck...this still returns files. Any ideas?
