Search on Joomla with Wordpress and phpBB3

Dear Expert.

I have a Joomla site. I would like to add a blog and a forum. I read phpBB3 is a very good option for forum, and Wordpress is a very good option for blog, and both could be integrated in Joomla.

However, my doubt is if I make a global search on the site, will it search on forum and blog post entries ? Which module search should I use ?

Thank you.

It probably wouldn't perform a global search without a whole lot of effort.  The integration of phpbb and WordPress are more along the lines of a single sign-in system than true integration into Joomla.

But I think there are some components which mades indexing like google, but just for the internal links.

This way, as my site is just a set of links on a set of pages, this approach should work, am I right ?

Yes, if you are spidering and creating an index...that will work.  But searching across the multiple content tables for Joomla, phpbb, and wordpress probably isn't the best strategy.

Then my question is: is there any extension that spiders the content ?

Not that I'm aware of.  But assuming your sites are linked up correctly, Google will index it for you.  You can then use the Google Custom Search module: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/search-a-indexing/site-search/2930
