how to implement search in uForum?
At the moment there is no search, so it would need to be a custom search of some kind.
1: Do your own sql statements against the tables
2: Do some indexing of the posts (Lucene?), and use the uForum events to keep it updated.
I expected first option, and hope there is another which works with xsltSearch :-(
The umbraco examine project you could make use of that and put in your own provider to index the uForum? Slace will have better idea of how todo it if its possible.
Well, since the content is not in umbraco, and xslt search does not have a pluggable structure, then it would require quite a rewrite of xslt search to make that usable.
Well, I like to ask from first time when I try uForum:
Why content isn't in umbraco, administration will be super easy if it is.
It's only for performance reasons? Should it be problem for small or midsize forums?
Yes, it is mainly for performance reasons. uForum was built for the our site, and as this site gets a lot of content very quickly, it needed to be stored outside umbraco as there was no need for versioning and such.
I understood, but it limit's uForum flexibility - some samples:
If I want allow users to add pictures to their post I must modify tables .... If it's normal umbraco node I simply add uploadfield for pictures, solution checkbox and maybe votes datatype. It also limits me to use other packages like xslt search or maintanance dashboard.
Will be great if umbraco has something like "fastnode" which don't need versioning. It can be used in situation like this - you need fast node without versioning maybe without validation. It can be used for forum posts and for blogpost comments too.
I don't know umbraco internals so I don't know if something like this can be implemented, but it can be nice feature.
