Question about Search

Hi there,

Am I right in thinking that Search will only return a complete word and not a partial word?

I seem to remember someone being pointed in the direction of a third party search tool that could be tied into Perch but I can't find the thread?

Can anyone remember what that tool is and does anyone have any experience of implementing it?

Thanks, John.

Hello John,

You may be referring to Algolia or Elastic Search.

Jay George built a Perch app to help integrating Algolia with a Perch site. I haven't used it, but you can find it on GitHub:

Cheers Hussein, that's great. I'll take a look.

We are considering using datatables search for our site. It will sadly take a while to load.. however the search is almost instantaneous and will search partial words.

I highly recommend They have a 7 day trial and it’s very easy to hook up.
