Fulltext should ignore accents

(Jano Suchal) #1

Hi there,

it is pretty common for search engines (e.g. google) to ignore accents on characters when doing fulltext search. Example: word kôprová omáčka should be matched by query koprova omacka and vice versa. With PostgreSQL unaccent extension this should be pretty easy. PostgreSQL: Documentation: 9.0: unaccent

Any plans to add this?

Username completition broken for names with accents like Régis

No plans at the moment but it is a pretty simple patch I would accept.

For CJK languages we pre-parse the text prior to indexing to split up words, same concept could easily be applied in the code path
