I've been trying to figure out how to make objects searchable.  I've been reading some of the materials on the subject but I still do not understand the process.  I know I have to choose the object type, implement FtsContent Provider and then add triggers, but in the midst of all that, how do I get it accomplished?  Can someone step me through this whole process (step-by-step process)?  It might be pretty basic but I am still pretty new at this.

Thank you

If you're willing to write up some documentation on how to do this, maybe the folks that know how to do it will be more keen to respond. I personally don't know the answer to your question.

You can also look at the service contracts doc, linked in from:


I think this is an area where documentation is lacking :-(
