Searching for Content Based on Location with Search API Location
The Search API Location module adds support for indexing location values provided by the Geofield module and subsequently filtering or sorting on them, provided the service class supports this. Currently, only the Search API Solr module is known to support this feature.
Creating a More Flexible Search Page Using Search Views
The Search Views module is distributed with the Search API module. This module integrates the Search API module with the Views module and gives us the ability to use the power of Views for filtering, sorting and most importantly displaying search results.
Using the Default Database as the Search Server
The Search API Database Search module provides a database backend for Search API. It uses database tables for indexing content. In this video, I will show you how to install and enable Search API Database Search and how to create a new server using the database service.
Last week the first videos of the Search API Series were released!
The into video gives an overview of what will be covered in this series. If you're just curious about what you can do with Search API, check this one out.
The Search API series is underway!
A while back, I asked everyone on the newsletter what they wanted to learn. The #2 request was Search. It seems there are people out there not happy with the default search capabilities of Drupal. They wanted to know how to use Search API as a replacement to utilize Facets and Solr. They specifically wanted to know how to search word parts, file contents, and display results with Views.

Exporting and Importing Views
When working with multiple views or sites, creating every view from scratch can be dull, repetitive and error prone. To avoid this, views provides a way to copy views from one site to another or from one environment (like local) to another (like staging). This final video in the Views series will show you how to do that.
I just wanted to let you know about a small change that's being made around here. Basically, all new videos will be free for a full week after they are posted!
I really want to make sure that people have a good idea of what to expect from the site before they sign up, and this is one way I thought I could do that. While I would absolutely love to be able to release all of my videos for free forever, I've got to feed the family too. :)
No Results Behavior and Exposed Forms
In this video, we configure what our view should do when the view returns no results. Then we take a look at how to separate our exposed form from the View and put it in a block that we can position anywhere on the page, just like we would with any other block.
