Multiple use of Stop words

Post by Gregor »

Hi,

Some modules make use of 'Stop words', f.i. the Search module and MetaMax. I think it would be handy to have one place in Admin where all Stop-words are entered and modules can use these words for their need.

Also 'separation characters'.. I've created a couple of aviation-related sites, and F-22 would search for "F" and "22", which are below the 3-character limit, and nothing would return.

It was a easy hack.. Remove '-' from the list of separation characters, but it was a code change, not a config change.

You come up with an new tab f.i. under Site Admin -> Global settings

Conceptual:
- Define two parameters, one for each area
- Define two editable areas, one for stop words and one separation characters
- Create two new database fields inside the core tables, related to the global settings
- No wysiwyg
- Update the modules using stop words and separation characters to make use of the defined parameters and retrieve the content from these parameters

Could someone of the cmsms team give this a thought?

Great Rolf and happy to hear Uniqu3 is willing to give it a thought and more important, give it a try :)

Grtz., Gregor
