I'm gonna use this great Q&A framework on my standalone django project.
The one problem is russian characters recognition in search. So, how can i enable unicode search and tags?
For example, if i create a question in russian and try to search keywords, included in it - there is no result (i tried on boot.askbot.com). I see, searching russian words works on askbot.org, but here is another issue: you should include full keyword in exact form to find a question(in English the situation is the same, so, how cam we improve the search?).
The same is when clicking on tag in russian in questions on frontpage. See example on boot.askbot.com.
PS i found recently that even search in English does not work correctly. For example, try to search keyword "about"(there are questions that include it) .It's a big problem. Even exact phrases don't give any results :( I think for Q&A conception this is high level issue that should be solved ASAP.
Thank you. I really like the project.
At this moment search works in one language at a time. This site and all hosted sites are configured for english. Also, this site runs on MySQL and hosted sites on PostgresQL - in those search functions are different.
I agree that search can be improved, even without configuring the language issue.
