[resolved] Boolean search (5 posts)

    I'm not getting the results I expect with the Boolean setting. If I put "WordPress AND first" or "+Wordpress +first" in my site's search box, shouldn't all the results have both WordPress and first in them? I'm getting results that only have one word in them. The site is currently hosted locally so I can't provide a URL.

    Actually, I just discovered that some words are apparently not indexed. Other words in the same post with the unindexed word are indexed and found by search. ???

    Is there a way you were able to get which words were indexed or not indexed?

    If I am not wrong, the way the mySQL FULLTEXT table is created by eliminating the most common words / stop words.

    You can see the list at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/fulltext-stopwords.html

    It seems that was the issue! Thank you for the prompt response.
