    Hi Ernest

    I have a couple ‘how to’ questions:

    1. How do I handle misspellings? For instance I have a product Abbott and Co. If I type Abbot it returns no results. I have tried keyword suggestions but this doesn’t seem to work – i.e. it makes no suggestions.

    2. Is it possible to restrict the amount of the post / product that is returned on the search page?
    As it stands the search results page returns the entire post / product and then puts a ‘read more’ button – which is kind of pointless if you have the entire post / product. At the moment I only have about 10% of the content in. When the site is complete there will be thousands of entries – it’s not going to work if every result reutnrs the entire page.

    Hi Martin,

    1. In very short: you can’t. The reason is, that recognizing mispellings would require either a very advanced linguistics feature (very processor heavy operation, and does not have universal PHP implementations), or a very sophisticated, dedicated search service (like elastic search or similar). Unfortunately these are way beyond the plugins capabilities. There is actually a plan for a feature with a different approach, that is sort of a combination of acceptable performance and accuracy – but still, is nowhere near the modern, dedicated solutions.

    2. The results page layout is controlled by the theme you are using, so that needs to be adjusted there.
