XF 2.0 Best way to search for content


Active member
I've created an article system in XF2 that functions similar to promoting threads in VB4, or the Demo Portal in XF2. I am integrating this into a profile system I created for football players. The goal is to display news written by staff writers on my website. What I am trying to determine is the best way to return the news that the player is mentioned in. The easier way to do this would be to search the content of all news for LIKE '%Player Name%'. I suspect there is probably a more efficient way to do this and was curious to if anyone had any ideas.

If the news is indexed, you could probably piggyback the search system within XF to do this.
