So today i decided to test the full text search index directly on PHPmyadmin to make sure it would match three letter words and i ran the following code:
SELECT title FROM sitetree WHERE MATCH(title) AGAINST ('pim')
and it does find all the rows where the title columns contain the word 'pim'.
But yet when i search in SS from my site i still get NO results??????
So i discovered something else of interest!
In this site i also have an 'advanced' search which uses a custom searchcontext on one of my classes i created. when i search via this method i can return 3 letter words????????
I've tested it on my site, and it works resonably well here. There are some Stopwords which are documented here http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/fulltext-stopwords.html which never can be found using the MySQL fulltext search tools.
If your search-engine is searching in another table the sitetree, you have to repair this table, too. So I recomment repairing all tables just to be sure.
For some reason after making the changes described by WeberHo i had to go and republish all the pages containing the 3 letter words.
I imagine rebuilding the relevant index(es) on the MySQL table would be an alternative to republishing the articles.
Yeah so did i and i tried that too I went into phpmyadmin and 'altered' the index and also tried doing a 'repair' of the table. but neither worked then i republished a page and it worked.
I'm having the search problem..!
I've read this thread, but i don't understand it. (e.g. where can i find my.cnf)
So can some one please tell me in short what i need to do to:
- Find pages when using 3 character strings in the SilverStripe searchbox?
