I want to implement Sphinx Search in my Wordpress site but I'm not exactly sure how to change Wordpress search behavior to use Sphinx.
How do I get Sphinx Search engine to replace whatever Wordpress uses as default? I also want to display search results in a div with animations and search options on a static front page with only the site logo above it. If I use Sphinx, is there a way to use a Wordpress loop to return the search results with query_posts function?
Thanks for your help!
