    Archiving News

    Remy Gendron Newbie

      Hello all,

      How can I archive news entry, but still have access to them through some kind of month/year index. I do not want them to show directly in the news section.

      Can we search on (archived) news entries?

      Regards,

      Starman

          I am currently working on indexing the news, so we can search on archived+published news.

          As of today, there is no month/year index.

            Good news,

            BTW, is there any way to configure the news module to allow paging through the news articles?

            Will your search solution be restricted to the news only or is it generic? Searching the faq would also be a great plus!

            Thanx for the info!

              The indexing solution already exists and is already in use in BB and HTML modules, i added News.

              For HTML, i think there is no interface to actually do the search.

              I am thinking about doing a search module to search in the whole website (for any module implementing the indexing)

              To do the indexing in FAQ there is not much to do, it would be great if you could look at how it is made in BB and do pretty much the same for the FAQ module.

              Basically you just need to make FAQModule implements "Indexable" and fill 2 methods. You also need to update the index each time a FAQ entry is added/modified/deleted.

              If anybody has any idea/comments about a search module, now is a good time.

                Yes that is one of the goals I had when designing the search module, the solution here is to have a common set of FIELDS between the modules so queries can be run against the different modules indices.
