Search Engine and Common words

Postby nef » Tue Nov 06, 2007 10:19 am


It's good that the search engine in OJS ignores common words, but in one case it apparently gives us trouble finding one of our authors named 'From'. Is there any way I can remove 'from' from the common word list in the search engine?

Hi nef,

You can edit the list of ignored words in registry/stopwords.txt.
