    Hello,
    Does anyone implemented an advance search mechanism with sitefinity api?
    Lets say i have extended the documents to have two more meta fields: subject and sub-subject.
    I want to give the user the ability to search according to these two or only one property.

    Any Help would be appreciated.

    Hello yuval,

    This is not supported out of the box, but you can use the API to create such functionality. A custom indexing provider should be implemented, which can supply the metafields values to the indexer in plain text. Please take a look at this thread for ideas - http://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/sitefinity-3-x/developing-with-sitefinity/indexing-troubles.aspx. The following article and video could be also helpful - http://sitefinitywatch.com/blog/09-06-25/Working_with_Sitefinity_Search.aspx

    I hope this helps!

    Best wishes,
