Highlighting with find_by_contents

I’m trying to highlight keyword snippets using the highlight method of
the results returned from find_by_contents (the actual models), but
always come up with an empty array. Any ideas what could be going wrong?

Have you defined the field(s) as storable?

Link to FieldInfo class:

You need to set up your fields with acts_as_ferret. This is how I have
mine setup (still learning Ferret and AAF so may not be totally correct
but highlighting works):

acts_as_ferret( :fields => {
 :name => {},
 :desc => {},
 :body => {:store => :yes},
 :role => {},

This allows me to use the highlighting with the “body” field. The other
ones still can’t highlight.

Thanks Curtis and Jens. That worked great (after rebuilding index)!
