With this feature, you can add synonyms to certain searchphrases. These synonyms have to be added by an editor, there are no predefined synonyms.
In a “Synonym” table you can add a searchphrase and some similar words. If someone searches for “car” you can create a new synonym record to search also for “vehicle” (implemented as an OR combination). You can add more than one synonym for a given searchphrase.
You have to activate this feature in extension configuration first.
I order to add synonyms, please - use the “list” module of TYPO3 - go to your search storage page - add a new record of type “Synonym”.
You have to enter each synonym in one line (divided by a line break).
The synonym feature works “back and forth”, that means in the following two cases:
- If the entered searchphrase equals <exactly> the „searchphrase“ of your synonym record. In this case the synoyms are added to the search query.
- If the entered searchphrase was found <somewhere> in the col
synonymsof synonym table. In this case if a synonym was found, ke_search_premium appends the word of searchphrase also to searchquery.
Note that in the search result list synonyms are not highlighted.
