[EP-tech] Re: Strange search behaviour

Which version of EPrints?
There is a nice little issue I discovered whereby and 'short' words are thrown away be the indexer, but not the simple search handler, so searching for e.g. 'Face to Face' wouldn't find 'Face to Face' - but I believe this is limited to the simple search.
Is there any correlation in what you're seeing and short search terms?

Subject: [EP-tech] Strange search behaviour

Hello all!

More of a question rather than a ?How do I?? this time! We?ve noticed some odd behaviour in our search, mainly around searching on keywords. Our EPrints system manager uses keywords to allow her to quickly find records of interest or importance. Both the quick search and the advanced search turn out 11 records when this keyword is used as the search term, a number she believes is wrong. I?ve done a focussed SQL search in the database and I get 72 records with this keyword, all of which are published records.

Is this just a problem on our installation or are there issues with the search in EPrints in general?
