I'm in need of a search solution for panels, and Page Manager Search seems to be the only one out there that doesn't involve Apache Solr. The problem I'm having with integrating it into my site is that it's results for panels content is set up to be separate from Drupal core search. What I really need is something that combines the two. Anyone have any luck getting Page Manager Search results to flow seamlessly into standard Drupal core search results?
I'm also curious why this module shows so little active usage (178 sites at the time of this post), when the problem of indexing panels content hasn't been otherwise solved outside of Solr. Is it just that everyone is using Solr?
