Hello, How do you handle advanced searches in Rails, i.e., anything more than one field? I searched the archives but wasn't able to find a good example of this. [I also noticed the forum itself has no advanced search yet!] This is another of those common scenarios--like advanced lookup functionality--that I'd address if I was inventing a Web framework. I've been re-reading the Agile Rails book but couldn't find a discussion of search functionality ("search" also isn't listed in the index). I'm sure people are building search functionality and I'm just missing something!

Hey Alex, Thanks. I may be making this more complicated than it needs to be in Rails.

I'm a newbie but I think that is what Ferret is for. On 1/27/06, Mike <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > email@example.com > http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails > -- Greg F. The Norcross Group Forensics for the 21st Century
