Now the Chinese search function fails to work completely. I had tested from a previous built from Bitnami, and the search works well, but now in the 0.9.8.5 and even the 0.9.8.7 version, it is completely broken , and I could just only search by english keywords.
There is also one issue that I am very concerned about : Will there be compatibility problems if I backup from an older version, than restore to a newer version? I tried to restore from a 0.9.8.5 backup file after upgraded to 0.9.8.7 , but it seems to fail to restore successfully.
It would be my pleasure to help and contribute with the Discourse project, however I am not familiar with the codings, and I am not sure where should I edit to change the corresponding fields. (For the favourite / starred part, I had made a pull request on github already, but for the other parts I have no clue how to fix them ) https://github.com/discourse/discourse/pull/2035
sorry for mixing the issues, maybe moderators can help and splitting the issues to 2.
I am a website administrator and not really good in programming, and I have almost no knowledge in postgres. So in a docker-digitalocean installation, how can I " tell Postgres to use the appropriate language for the database indexes" ? ( It would be quite easy in a phpmyadmin evrionment, but I don’t know what it will be in a postgres case )
I believe this is a big issue for every non-English non-Latin Discourse users.
It seems that the older version codes have no problem in searching Chinese.
In fact, in the trial period using discoursehosting.com services and my localhost Bitnami build , both seems to be able to search without problems too. ( But their versions are definitely not the updated latest version)
So I guess there should be something to do with the codes itself, but not some external settings.
I am not a programmer , so I have no idea how to do so ( copy / pasting the codes in the tutorial to install is my best already ) , and I believe many end users also won’t have this ability to change these settings manually.
At least there should be a well documented tutorial for how to change the specific settings ?
(As a matter of being “The wordpress of forums” , I do believe this should be a no-hassle automated process though )
@aaroleung I guess it was the following algorithm: backup database data, create correct system charset in ubuntu, then create database schema again, update indexes to correct ones, and add data. But I cannot say it’s all true. That’s what I read how are other updating the index with a correct collocation.
