Search word length

By default ke_search only finds words with a minimum length of four characters. This corresponds to the MySQL setting “ft_min_word_len” which is set to 4 by default.

The value can be reduced by following theses steps:

  • change “ft_min_word_len” to the desired value in your MySQL configuration (eg. my.cnf) (default: 4)
  • set “searchWordLength” in the extension manager setting to the same value
  • re-index your content
