Can't search for numbers?

Post by brianpeat » Tue Jul 28, 2020 9:27 pm

I'm testing out phpMyFAQ as an actual searchable database of boiler plate text disclaimers and legal copy for my employer. It seems like it will work for us with a bit of customization, but some disclaimers have things like "© 2020" in them and I've found that if I search for 2020 nothing comes up. I set the results to always be Answer - Keywords - Question, but still, no numbers. Is this by design or a glitch? I'm worried that if we have a disclaimer with numbers in it, it won't ever come up in a search.

Thanks!

Hi,

do you use Elasticsearch or the database search?

Database, as I wasn't exactly sure what elastic search was and if it required any preexisting stuff (like an account somewhere else or something on the server). I'll turn it on and see what happens.

Thanks!
