Searches all pages and data objects (that have a proper index)

All DataObject subclasses that include a fulltext index named "SearchFields" will be searched Specify the database columns you want to be searched as follows:

private static $indexes = [
	'SearchFields' => [
		'type' => 'fulltext',
		'columns' => ['MyField1', 'MyField2'],

You'll also need to set the tabel engine as follows

private static $create_table_options = [
	MySQLSchemaManager::ID => 'ENGINE=MyISAM'

Build your search form setting the search input with the name "s", and post to the search page action "results"

<form method="get" action="{$SearchPage.Link(results)}">
    <input type="search" name="s" value="" />
    <input type="submit" value="Search" />
