Update Search Improvement


I've installed an addon which complements the enhanced search we are using on this site.

Search Bar Auto Complete

When your users type in the search bar on your forum they will see suggestions based on what they have typed so far. The terms come from phrases used in your index rather than just common words. This means that it should work well for niche boards, any language, etc... This can really help reduce missed searches.

Suggestions/"Did You Mean" Functionality

There are two different "Did You Mean" features. One type is for even when the user has results for their search but there is a more popular, similar, term in your board's index. This can lead to better results. It also helps reduce typos. The other type is for when there are no results for their query, they will be presented with a list of similar terms that appear in your index.
