auto suggest's result missing some content

Submitted by merlin on Tue, 2011-05-17 09:09.General Discussions

Hi all,

I have a question on auto suggest.
for example, i have someone's name 'B Thomas' in the index, when i do auto suggest, by typing in B, i will not get B Thomas, instead i get other names that has B in it, such as 'Ben'. If i type in Thomas for auto suggest, B Thomas doesn't show up in the list either. But if i hit enter on the search box, B Thomas is there. Do you know what i can do to have B Thomas show up in the list?

thanks

The phrase extractor in DBSight would skip all single character word. In this case, "B". These single characters were considered word separator.

Please use DBSight 4.2.0 beta released today.

Instead of hard-code the word separator length, now it's all customizable via stopwords.txt file.

Hi Will,
i just tried the new version 4.20, on the regular search(not auto suggest), if i type in A and press enter, nothing shows up, but if i type in B, i have results such as "H A B". other letters are fine and returns results, but just not a or "A". i must have done something wrong... is there setting some where i can turn this thing off? is that a stop word? because i tried removing a from the stopword.txt and it still behaves the same way.
thank you

It's the stopwords.txt file. After changing the txt file, you need to run another indexing to make it working.
