I've created a custom area of functionality with its own data, and need to do a custom search on this data, i've found this article which helps with thishttp://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/support-forum-thread/b1043S-bgedcm.aspx
So now i have my custom search index! great, however, i want the search to search my custom index, and the standard index
i.e. there are 2 areas i need to search
1) Search using defatult index i.e. standard functionality
2) Include the search for custom data
What the easiest way to do this i.e. how would i merge these two indexes into one ? in order to have both sets of data searchable from one search box?
