Website search tool not working as expected

Dec 1, 2014 3:06 pm

The search engine in Freedom is still being worked on, and there have been a few questions as to how it works. Currently, the site search engine works as follows:

If a search string has 2 characters - Freedom will only search page titles.
If a search string has 3 or more characters - Freedom will search page titles and bodies.

The hyphen is a special character in full text search, so something like "w-9" is not seen as a three character search; it's seen as a search with a stop in it.

We have plans to optimize Freedom's search engine to better fit your needs. If you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
