#43612 (In Topic #9696)


Our new Admin Zone search has premièred in 4.0.3. One small thing that is missing is something called a stemmer. A stemmer allows you to search for something like 'publishing' and match words like 'publish' in the results.

It would be a huge job to write one of these, so I used an Open Source one. Unfortunately for licensing issues (which I hope to resolve) I can't integrate it, so it works as a plugin. To turn it on just upload the file attached below…

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
