Hi James,

thanks for the answer.
Indeed if I do something like this:
        $data = 'author='.$postrow['starter_name']."\n";
            $data .= 'authorid='.$postrow['starter_id']."\n";
            $data .= 'forum_id='.$postrow['forum_id']."\n";
It will be correctly inserted.

However, what do you mean with "you could pull data out of wherever it came from to display
That I could parse the result by looking back at the datasource (a database)? I guess there are pro and con's about that.

You're setting the document data field to just the pid. If you want it
to be compatible with omega, you'll need to put the right data in
there, as documented in ``Document data construction'' in
omega/docs/overview.html. Alternatively, if you're using your own
searcher, you could pull data out of wherever it came from to display
it and cut down on data duplication - which makes more sense depends
on a huge number of factors. The former is the easier to migrate
gradually from the omega tools to your own system.
