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 (e.g. my.cnf) (default: 4)
  • Set searchWordLength in the extension manager setting to the same value
  • Re-index your content
