Well,
1. For example, when i past in search form "news", and in article what i looking for is "new", search engin find nothing.
2. Good idea can be, did you mean like in google, for mistakes like snevs, for example
3. For example when i make a mistake and i past in search form "What is snews?" and title is "What is snews ?" snews find nothing because space between "snews" and "?"
4. For example i past in search form "search engin" but in article is "search form", snews engine find nothing.

OK, this are my problems about snews search engin

thank you for yours ideas.

If you ask the search form to find the word "new" it will find it but it will not find the word "news". The same goes with "car" and cars" - and that is because they are two different words... without the "s" it is in singular form and with the "s" it is in plural (more than one). In other words... if you want to find "apples" then you would need to search for "apples" and you will not get "oranges".  ;)

Welcome Shareman,

I do understand your disappointment, but please do not compare the search engine of any cms with Google. If anyone could develop a search engine like that, past it into a single file cms and make it work on a cheap webspace with limited resources....... WOW!  :P


This search engine can return the following results for whisk:

Whisk
Whiskas
Whisky
Whiskey

However, it cannot return Whisky as a result for Whiskey or return public relations as a result for pubic relations.

I think the current search engine is okay.
