Forum search: Too many words ignored because classified as "commont words"

Postby mark_orion » Sun Mar 01, 2020 5:28 pm

The search feature in these forums is driving me crazy: Too many of the search words I am trying to use are getting ignored because they are classified as too common words. I want for example to look for information related to Bluetooth LE MIDI support in G-Stomper. Hopeless! Both "Bluetooth" and "MIDI" are constantly getting ignored as "too common words". I tried in quote with + etc. - does not work. So please - if possible - tune down this "common words" filter in this forum system to allow searching for very meaningful words again.

Please be more specific with your search terms, e.g. "Bluetooth le midi integration" or similar. That will solve it.

Thanks for your quick help. This worked indeed. I was thinking I was specific enough when my search query "Bluetooth le midi support" got flagged as too common.

I'll see if this can be opened a bit. I don't know yet. It's part of the forum software.

Hi mark_orion
Sorry for the long wait. I've just rebuilt the search index with a much higher threshold for words flagged as "too common".
You can now search for "bluetooth", "bluetooth midi", whatever you're up to.

Thanks for the update! I had tried using the search function when I joined the forum, but quickly gave up on it because of that very reason. I didn't insist much as I thought it was just an unsolvable phpbb issue one has to deal with, but if it's solved, then, that's great.
