Hello Swish-E users,
I just set up Swish-E for the first time, and I got it working successfully
using the HTTP method, and doing command line, or CGI-form searching.
The only feature I'm missing is support for some of the foreign language
characters. For example, commonly used German characters are: üäöß. And
various Spanish, Italian, and French characters are: ùèìòéí¿ó ñ etc., they
don't get returned in the search results, I guess because they're not
indexed, as it states in the Swish-E config file, only use these ones:
In any case, I tested adding the characters üäö in the config file and in the
HTML files, and re-indexed, but as I expected, it didn't work. Although, I
also tested using German characters (üöä) in the META tags ("PropertyNames"),
and notably in that situation they worked when I did a command line search
with the -p option.
I have a site in Spanish, Italian, French, German and English, so for my
purpose its important to make these foreign characters work. Does anyone know
a fix to this? or would much of the Swish-E code need to be re-built to make
it work?. As such, maybe it would be better for me to find another search
engine, any advise on this foreign-character problem would be appreciated!
PS: I just joined the list, so I'm not sure if its working, please include a
CC of any replies to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
