Creating search state to search for multiple types

Hi,

I am creating a search field where an user can type any word and it will search for it in three different types of assets.

As of now, I am creating three diff search states and adding corresponding constraint to them.

Is this the right way to do OR is there any work around where I can create only one search state and add three diff constrains for these diff asset types.

Any guidance will be really appreciated.

Thanks,
Nelash Jindal

    Have you explored the integrated lucene search functionality? Basically you can allow lucene to index the asset types you want to search in and create a search form that queries the index. The internal search in the contributor UI is using the same method.
    Check the developers guide page: 857 Public Site Search, this could be used for your purpose as well... On the authoring environment all asset types are already enabled to be indexed.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Rodney
