I've implemented Ferret, using the instructions here:

I get no errors in the application at all... however, I always get 0
I built an index off of some data, it exists in the index/ directory,
form submits find... etc...

Just 0 results... all the time :)

I confirmed the data from my models is being put into the index...
am having a hard time debugging why the lookup isn't working.
Any insight would be greatly appeciated !
Thanks !

Write up a test that shows your code not working.   That will help in
figuring out what is wring.

lol... I would... but thought somebody (Jan perhaps ?) may have some
into this prior to going this deep.
Her implementation contains a lot of code, and I've debugged as far as I
without going into the Ferret source... which I was hoping I wouldn't
to do :|

sorry, but haven't had a chance lately to test myself with newer
Versions of

It would be great if you could update the wiki page while you are going
Please have a look at the ferret wiki. as
as the rforum code for more advanced
examples of ferret-rails integration. There are quite a few railers who
managed the integration in different ways judging by this mailing list
the ferret mailing list.

Thanks Jan, as I debug more (when I have time), I'll update this thread
well as the wiki if needed.  Thank you !

Hi Dylan,

Sorry for the slow reply. My guess would be that you are searching a
different field than the one you put your data in. I'd need to see a
some of your code to tell for sure. I hope you work out your problem.

Hey David !

Thanks very much for the reply.  I've put this on the back-burner for
as I have a million other priorties at the moment, but when I revisit
I'll definitely keep you posted.

By the way, thank you *so* much (and Jan for the tutorial !) for this
project.  Great job !
