Setting Description Default
Unified Index (formerly known as UnifiedSearch)
Search If enabled, Tiki will use its own managed index for site searches.
Incremental Index Update If enabled, Tiki will update its internal search index each time new content (pages) are created.
Note: Enabling this option may impact performance
Unified Index Engine Select the index engine.
Field Weights Use this area to configure field-weighting in search results. You can assign different weighting values to different sections of a page (such as its title)
Default content fields
Rebuild Index Click Rebuild Index to rebuild the Tiki-managed search index.
MySQL Search
MySQL Full-Text Search For Tiki versions 6.x and higher this should be set on if search is to be enabled
Referrer Search Highlighting Referrer search highlighting is when a user goes to a search engine such as Google or Yahoo and performs a search that generates links to your pages. When they click on the link and this feature is active, Tiki notices that they have come from a search engine site and highlights the search words they used. The result is similar to using the search using Tiki’s own search facility.
Parse the results When enabled search results are parsed so content formatting is visible in the search results
Search stats This option enables administrators to collect and view statistics on search activity
Permissions
Ignore individual object permissions This option can improve systems performance but can also result in a search revealing items the user may not be entitled to view
Ignore category viewing restrictions This option can improve systems performance but can also result in a search revealing items the user may not be entitled to view
Features
Autocomplete on page names This option enables Tiki to automatically complete page names as the user starts typing. For example the user types the start of the wiki page name “Sear” and Tiki returns “Search”, “Search General Settings”, etc

Referer Search Highlighting Specify if the search results page will highlight the matched words. See Referrer Search Highlighting for details.
Note: Selecting this option may negatively affect Tiki search performance.
Parse the Result Specify if Tiki should parse the wiki syntax on the search results page. If not selected, the wiki sytax (code) will be shown. Selecting this option may negatively affect Tiki search performance.

This option was introduced in Tiki 2.0
Activate MySQL Full Text Search If selected, the search uses a full-text database search. If not selected, the database search is primarily an OR search between searched words. The Tiki search will be refreshed automatically.

This option was introduced in Tiki 2.0
Ignore individual object permissions If selected, the database search results will show all matches — even if the user does not have permission to view the specific page. Selecting this option may negatively affect Tiki search performance.
Ignore category viewing restrictions If selected, the database search results will show all matches — even if the user does not have permission to view the specific category. Selecting this option may negatively affect Tiki search performance.

Search Refresh Mode Specify how Tiki determines th search refresh index: Normal or Random.

Note: This option applies only if the Activate MySQL Full Text Feature is not enabled.
Search refresh rate Specify how often Tiki should refresh the search engine: the bigger is the number, the less often one random object is indexed. At each access to a page of the site, a random number between 1 and the refresh rate is computed . If this number is 1 , a random abject is indexed. Starting with Tiki 2.0, the index is refreshed in real time.

Note: This option applies only if the Activate MySQL Full Text Feature is not enabled.
Minimum length of search word Specify the minimum number of characters of the search word.

Note: This option applies only if the Activate MySQL Full Text Feature is not enabled. When using the MySQL Full Text Search, you must specify the word length it in the MySQL configuration by using the ft_min_word_len variable. See the MySQL documentation for details.
Max. number of words containing a syllable only for the db independent search.

Note: This option applies only if the Activate MySQL Full Text Feature is not enabled.
Max. age in hours of syllable search cache only for the db independent search.

Note: This option applies only if the Activate MySQL Full Text Feature is not enabled.
LRU list purging rate only for the db independent search.
