using searchlogic to retrieve ids, then rebuild object?

im giving searchlogic a try to combine named scopes easily
only issue i have is it doesnt return distinct results
ive worked around this with a named scope of grouped which selects
only the id and groups by the id
once ive got the ids, how can i quickly rebuild the
object...find(:id=>[@ids]...or something similar?

What’s the actual code to your query that uses Searchlogic? This will help

#model location.rb
named_scope :grouped, :select => 'locations.id', :group =>
'locations.id'
has_many :criterias, :through => :locations_criterias

#controller locations_controller.rb
# i havent even gotten to the paginate part yet
@locations = Location.criterias_name_or_name_like(@query).grouped
#.paginate(:page => params[:page])

the @locations returns multiples of same result
so i added the grouped named scope that only selects the id in order
to only group on id
at this point i need to rebuild my location object using the id
returned by @locations

fixed

changed my :grouped named_scope to distinct:

named_scope :distinct, :select => "distinct locations.*"
