    Hi Ernest,

    We are doing some final tests, but have discovered a small issue regarding some search results not showing up. The search draws only from image attachment repository including Titles, Caption and Description.

    Because the Logic & Behavior is set up with “AND with EXACT word matches”, there are no search results for delimited words followed by comma, full stop or …

    Current settings:
    https://prnt.sc/YCbImsgrX9g0

    “Dog Grooming Services” Example:

    https://prnt.sc/fxWSC7H-DwVJ

    https://prnt.sc/lgP3idZp9hjV

    Using the DOG GROOMING SERVICES as an example from the website, if you type in the words:
    “ears.” “price.” “friendly,” “£15…” you get the “dog grooming services” search return.
    But, if you type in “ears” “price” “friendly” etc., you get NO search result.

    We need to keep the Logic & Behavior settings exactly as is, because we will be using keyword stemming ie. brand, brand-s, brand-ing, brand-ed, etc. Any search words entered into the search bar need to match “EXACTLY” in order to find the best search results.

    How can we perhaps resolve this “, . …” issue?

    I have tried searching the documentation – but don’t really know what I should be looking for?

    Kind regards,
    Sally

    Hi Sally,

    The best way to get around this is by using the index table engine. It requries tome configuration – but it actually parses and stores all the texts in a separate table, stripping all delimiters as well as doing a lot of processing.

    Best,

    Hi Ernest,
    Thank you for your response – and for pointing me in an alternative direction! I will look into that option – and if I have any further issues, I will get back to you. Have a good weekend!
    Sally
