I need to make a search functionality on my home page to search through all my Models ( I have 4-5 tables). The only search I know off is CgridView from CDbcriteria, looks exactly the same as the Admin and not what I want. I’m looking to place a simple search box, can anyone guide me to an extension? or does Yii have a simple way to do this? The best looking one I found so far is the Zend Lucen tool here
It will be good to hear how some of the Yii people go about this.
