Hello Véronique,

thanks. Now, recentering on a result works with

function recenter(id){
    if ($('search_config').value == 'Adresses') {
        $('id_recenter_ids').value = id; //id to recenter

My search works perfectly on seven columns (id, company name, city, 
postal code, ...) of one table. I did everything according to the 
documentation. After I found out, how the input fields etc. have to be 
named, everything was fine. If I am not mistaken, there was one error in 
the documentation. In Search.ajax.js, it should be 'if 
(pluginOutput.htmlCode.Adresses) {' instead of 'if 
(pluginOutput.htmlCode.myconfig) {'. If it helps, I could send you my 
configuration and templates.

One thing that I do not like about the provided full text search is the 
use of LIKE in the where clause, since you have to be careful with upper 
and lower case. Therefore, I wrote my own provider using ~*, so I can 
use regular expressions and it ignores upper and lower case.

I will now try a guided search.
