my data is getting bigger and so i want to add full-text to make searching better.

but one item i want to make 4 fields full-text searchable as they all play a huge role in finding the correct item.

i found a tutorial that gave me a small idea on it but it didnt get too informed on it.

if anyone can give me some more details on this, I'd like that :)

thanks :)

There is a ton of information in the refman pages... basically, you simply create a 4-column FULLTEXT index, and off you go.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
