Search in both topics(discussions) and comments
Hi all, I'm customizing Vanilla. Already have done a lot of custimized work, but now I'm stuck with this. I need to customize the search option in such a way it will search both in comments and in topics(discussions). It should display results in the same way the "comment" search is displayed in this page. If the keyword(s) is(are) found in a discussion, then the 1st post text should be displayed in the results list. I have the SQL sentence to show these results; it's fairly trivial and easy. But I don't know how to use it. I've taken a look into the code and I see the search method has to be used for one of these classes: topic, comment or user. Do I have to create a new class, maybe called "all"? I don't see the point of this. Lots of work for a simple feature. I don't even know how to deal with the query class. My SQL query should have a subquery and a union. Can this be accomplished with it or should I make the query directly? As you can see, I'm a little lost with this. Any help will be greatly appreciated ;)
