How come the new search sucks?

Post by ryan1918dotcom » Sat May 01, 2010 10:29 pm

Okay, so if I search in my forum example, "spynet" and there is a post with "spy net" in it, it comes up with zero results but if I search for "spy net" it will return results.. Why would a space matter?

Question Back: What is the difference between "pen is" and the word with no space? :roll: Because it is a big difference and also: Where the heck should the search know how to split a word?

I would venture to guess that depends on what language packs are installed. If it's a Chinese or Japanese board and those are the language packs installed then it would read those characters.

phpBB supports UTF-8 encoding, and thus can search for those characters perfectly fine, though the search indexing may have to be changed to allow 1-2 characters for these specific languages.
