First I < require ‘acts_as_ferret’ > in enviroment.rb.
Then I use < acts_as_ferret > in every model I need. (user, spec,

I made a serch form partial.

<% form_tag({ :action => “Search” }, :method => “get”) do %>

Search: <%= text_field_tag "q", params[:q] %>
<% end %>

And in the controller:

def search
if params[:q]
query = params[:q]
@users = User.find_with_ferret(query, :limit => :all)
specs = Spec.find_with_ferret(query, :limit => :all)
detalii = Detalii.find_with_ferret(query, :limit => :all)

  hits = specs + detalii
  @users.concat(hits.collect { |hit| hit.user }).uniq!

  @users.each { |user| user.spec ||= }
  @users = @users.sort_by { |user| }
  @users = @users.paginate(:page => params[:page], :per_page => 10)
