How does search work? Part II: Making Effective Use of “Stop Words”

Filed under: Search, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 9:58 am CommentsComments (7) 

In a prior post I started reviewing the search process used in phpBB2. In summary, there are two tables involved. One table includes a set of words, each assigned a unique word_id value. The second table stores a cross reference of words and posts where that word appears. That makes searching for unique words very fast. It makes your search tables very large. In my opinion the best tool a board owner has to combat this is the stopwords file. This post will cover that file and how you can use it to tune searching on your board.
