As posted last week, this blog now runs on WordPress with Azure SQL as its database. The Brandoo plugin is used to translate the original MySQL database layer and maps it to SQL Server.
One challenge with the plugin – WordPress native search does not work using the Brandoo plugin. I created a brand new site just to test it out and verified that this is a basic defect in the plugin. There is also a documented conversation here that documents this as a bug.
I’ll be continue to dig into this issue to see if there are alternative solutions to the out of the box search capabilities.
