acts_as_ferret

Question - I have done some reading on this plugin and how it performs full text searches. Can it be used and if so, is it a good idea to use it in searches for regular values in a database. For instance, i want to search for all records with a record_id of 2 and all color_id with 9.

Ferret basically makes an index file on your hard drive. Use it only for fulltext searches, that’s what it’s really good at. ID searches are still best performed on the database itself.

Ok…thanks Peter.
