Partial Keywords -- No Results?confused smiley
October 26, 2014 05:45PM
Hi all,

I am using Sphider on a site and it works pretty well outside of one issue/feature: partial keywords. Given this title of an indexed page:

"Jonathan went to the store"

If someone searches "Jonathan", the article does come up.
If someone searches "Jon", the article does not come up.

I've tried adjusting some of the queries in searchfuncs.php by changing a few query statements to use 'like' instead of '=' (keyword = '$searchword' to keyword like '%$searchword%'). However, this has not worked. I've searched the forum and haven't found much either.

I can't be the only one who is annoyed by this. Any ideas?

It is always a good idea to use the 'Search' function of this forum. But you might need to search not only within the last 6 month. Otherwise you would have found a 6 years old thread, which offers to search with wildcards.

Enjoy it, or use the up to date Sphider-plus.
