Default Customfields indexed in search?

I know there was a dicussion that it would be perfect to have an option to search by customfields - which I hope will be in next realease

BUT are those CF at least indexed in search index. Or is it hard to attach text from them into post-text so that they become indexed? That would be half-solution for searching possibilities...

They arent connected to the search in any form. vB's search mechnism is a beastly mound of code that is a nightmare to comb through. I hope to have a solution in the future, but until then, custom fields are not searchable

Isnt there at least quick solution that will add text from custom fields into the post text, but hidden to user reading the post?

That will make at least that text-value from CF will be indexed and thus it will be included into search.

Lets say I use it as directory - if someboedy set up value for CF=City NEW YORK nobody can search directory for NEW YORK because it is not included in the indexed text.

No, there isn't a way to do this unfortunately. In the future they will be searchable. Just not right now.

Are custom fields searchable in the latest version that was just released? This is a must have feature for what I need on my site.

Thanks

Don't know if they are searchable, but they CAN be used as a filter for the last couple of releases. We're using it on our site, IIRC they aren't additive, but it's still an moderately effective way to help folks find what they're looking for.

Thanks. A filter would work except I want them to be able to search by airport code (of which there are several thousand). I think that makes the "Filter" option a little unrealistic for what I am trying to do.
