Acts as ferret


#1

So i have acts as ferret working nicely except for one problem. I can’t
for the life of me filter results on a parent model!
For example we have a tree that goes
Account->User->Article

Article.find_by_contents(“hello”) works great but I try something like
Article.find_by_contents(“hello”, {}, {:include=>:users,
:conditions=>[“users.account_id = ?”])

gives a bunch of errors, its clearly not including the users

Hi,

I know that it’s not your question, but alot of people seem to have
problems with Ferret in production. Might I suggest to switch to
Shpinx using ThinkingSphinx plugin before it’s too late? :slight_smile:

As for your question, I don’t know enough about Ferret to help you,
I’m sorry.

Bloody brilliant David!
The ThinkingSphinx quickstart had the EXACT example i needed. After
re-reading sphinx install instructions (forgot the --with-pgsq option),
setup was a breeze and it works perfectly!
