And maybe search for "hole word" only as default:===> 'Fun'
With an hint to use asterisks ===> '*fun*' for fuzzy search.
Or better an check box?-AbteriX (July 27, 2007, 07:08 PM)
There's a serious problem with matching "whole word" only, normally you do NOT want to search with this option in that:
With "whole word" matching on, if someone searches "tool", it won't find "tools"; similarly, for "play", the search wont be able return "played", "playing", "player", etc. variants. In the end there will be many missing results and the user may end up having to revise search query many times.
Let's say I search for: free download manager, should a post that contains "freeware downloader manager" or "freebie downloading managers" match. With "whole word" matching on, the post will be excluded from results, unfortunately.
Able to use RegEx would be handy of course ==> '\bFun??' ===> 'Fun' , 'funny',....-AbteriX (July 27, 2007, 07:08 PM)
