Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: OpenFTS as searching on partial words

Posted by Neophytos Demetriou on
Ouch, reading this thread again. No, it seems that partial words searching works only in the traditional way, i.e. select * from yourtablename where title ~* 'play';

Lars, you may want to checkout
for all features supported by tsearch (and thus openfts).

It seems like you are the person whom I need to talk to since you have been involved with the search package development.  I am having some problems with the search package.  I am pretty sure I have installed OpenFTS and Search correctly.  Now I want to be able to search, or do a wide search on my site.  The major question I have is do I make an object searchable?  I have read a few series of documentations but they did not provide me with too much help.  I'd rather have a step-by-step process (similar to the OpenACS setup) to guide me through setting my objects and making them searchable.
