How to use Stop Words in Searchanise

Modified on: Tue, Dec 26, 2017 at 4:43 PM


Stop words are special words that are disregarded during search. The words from the Stop Words list will be filtered out, and won’t be taken into consideration by the search engine. This will give you more relevant search results. By default, such words as "a", "the", and some prepositions are added to the stop word list.
