Better Search
Every search produces "No results" (6 posts)

    Go to this page (or any page), but try this one.


    Enter "methodology" in the search, at the top of the sidebar. Note that you're searching for a word that appears in the title of that page.

    Results is "No results" !!!

    Try any other page and any other search. It's always NOTHING.

    What's going wrong?

    I can't explain it. I deactivated the plug in, tried another search enhancer, and gave up on it. Reactivated Better Search for a second time, and this time it stayed working. Bizarre.

    BTW - I did find these errors while it wasn't working.

    I have a feeling this could be because your tables are in InnoDB in a version below 5.6 which doesn't support FULLTEXT indices.

    If your table is in ISAM then it would support the FULLTEXT. Unfortunately, it's an issue that I haven't found a solution to. :(

    Now search is broken again. Every search produces "no results."

    How is it that it works, but then completely fails?

    The site is hosted at WPEngine. Is there some problem with that environment? I was working fine during development. Now that it's in production, I enabled the CDN.

    My only guess is somehow their caching environment is effecting Better Search.

    Jim, it could be a possible that it's the WP Engine environment. I know that they don't like FULLTEXT indices and so they might be automatically cleaning up these which could also explain your error above.
