  • [CMS] Search Fails for Articles older than 6 months.

    vB CMS 4.0.2 PL1

    I am brand new at this, so it may have nothing to do with the specific release. However, any Search that I do either from the search textbox in the Navbar or from Advanced Search fails to find anything in articles older than 6 months. It does not make any difference if in the Advanced search I selected One Year old or newer.

    I have rebuilt the search indexes from the admincp with no change in results.

    The words that I am searching on are of length 4 letters or longer, and they are not one of the MySQL stop words. The MySQL server is using the default setting for ft_min_word_len = 4.

    Is there a configuration setting somewhere that I am missing. We, once we are up and running, will be a small site and I would to have the search index cover all of our content.

    The articles that were being searched in this test are articles that have been imported from Wordpress using ImpEx. It appears that articles that have been opened and saved from vBulletin are searchable, but imported articles that have not been edited at all are not searched. It just so happened that I had edited most articles up to 6 month old in the test.

    Imported articles not searchable if not edited

    The articles that were being searched in this test are articles that have been imported from Wordpress using ImpEx. It appears that articles that have been opened and saved from vBulletin are searchable, but imported articles that have not been edited at all are not searched.
    I confirm this. Imported articles can't be found in any search if they haven't been manualy edited once.
    We need to edit each article, and rebuild the search index to make them searchable.

    Is there any sql query we could run to avoid the manual edit after import?
