Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Dear OJS support team,

When we press the search button and provide proper search criteria, search does not work and returns no results despite the fact that we have uploaded articles that fit the search criteria? any idea on what is going wrong?

Have you tried rebuilding the OJS search index with the script in the tools directory? From inside of your base OJS directory, you can run:

Code: Select all
php tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php

There are also configuration options in the search section of your config.inc.php file that specify paths to various tools for extracting text from different file formats. Perhaps this area needs to be configured.
