JusT testing - not as good as I had imagined (2 posts)

    Ok, I saw this float through and thought it might be wonderful for a larger site I run so wanted to test it on a family site to gauge results.
    A a test, I typed in http://www.cooney.com.au/miracle-wrinkle-cream to see if it found a recent public service post I did at http://www.cooney.com.au/the-big-miracle-wrinkle-cream-ripoff

    I just returned a 404 so I'm guessing I don't fully understand to intended purposes or algorithm being used. I wasn't able to find any settings either so I'm also guessing there isn't any.

    Great concept though.

    Hey Rastarr,

    The reason why that didn't work is the plugin uses a distance threshold of 3 to determine suitable matches... meaning there can only be a max of three different letters or letter changes in the URL to match.

    You can adjust this in the plugin itself - personally I've found that moving it up as high as 15 or 20 is fine in most cases, as the plugin will pick whichever match has the lowest amount of steps as the "winner".
