Search mulitple words
Hi,

I've got a "Search" question.

I want to be able to do "fuzzy" searches.

For example:

I have a link with key words HOMEWORK HELP

If someone types in "Homework Helps" they get either an "error: no matching records" message when they use the AND connector; or they get all sites with either word if they use the OR connector.

Is there a way to allow users to enter approximate searches and have the search script "guess" in a fuzzy logic way?

I have looked in the Forums and found the following but they didn't seem to help. This does not seem to be Boolean search exactly. I know that Links does not have that.
