Hi there! I want to implement a "simple" full text search (no ajax needed) into a webpage that's built with processwire. I couldn't find any threads, tutorials or modules helping with this. Can anyone help me with this or point me to a place where I find information how to implement this? Thanks in advance! Jonas
I want to allow full text search on my site. There is a very nice solution that comes right out of the box: $selector = "title|body~=$q, limit=50"; This works, but to make it even better I would want to give higher weight to pages where the search term occurs in the title, than if it just occurs in the body. After all, a page with the title "Wine from France" is probably the best match for the search "france wine". How do I accomplish this in ProcessWire? I can see three possible paths, but I am not very fond of any of them: Do a direct SQL query, circumventing the API, along these lines. But I would prefer to abstract away the database layout if at all possible. Use something like ElasticSearch, but to be honest that would be to complicated to set up and maintain in the long run. Make multiple lookups, first for matches in the title, then for matches in the body, and merge and sort in PHP. My suspicion is that this would get complicated quite quickly. For instance, how do you deal with a page that has two of the three search terms in the title and the third in the body? Is there a magic option four I should look into? Or are any of the above options better than the others? Any input is welcome!
