So I'm trying to find a way to make the perch search a little broader.
Currently, if a user searches "Egypt", for example, this will ignore any result with the word "Egyptian". From the looks of the debug, Perch makes used of MATCH/AGAINST MySQL Queries - is it possible to introduce any wildcarding?
I looked into MATCH/AGAINST and found that you can apparently use wildcards like "Egypt*" (working a little like a LIKE function, although the wildcard can't go at the front). This doesn't work with Perch, so I wondered if there is a simple way (already built in) to get it to do what I want? If not, are there any 3rd party (don't mind if they aren't free) extensions or plugins for website search that Perch is compatible with? As exact keyword searches are a bit limited.
Thanks for any help!
