Search Issues 2.0

Post by gaddcasey1 » Wed Aug 15, 2018 4:59 pm

I am using the PDO version of 2.0. I have indexed my site and when I search for a topic results are not found. when I turn on suggestions the term appears. When I search for that term nothing is found.

Just judging by what I see in your post, is it possible that "enloe" only appears in pdf documents?
IF that is the case, two things must be true. First, indexing of pdf files must be enabled in settings. Second, a pdf to text converter must be present and settings must point to the correct path for that converter.

Now, if "enloe" also appears in any web pages, it should be getting picked up. Try an "and" search to see if results appear.

If you still have difficulty, send me the url of the site and I will take a look. If you prefer the world not know the url, you can send that via PM.
