Search Bar Auto Complete
When your users type in the search bar on your forum they will see suggestions based on what they have typed so far. The terms come from phrases used in your index rather than just common words. This means that it should work well for niche boards, any language, etc... This can really help reduce missed searches.
Suggestions/"Did You Mean" Functionality
There are two different "Did You Mean" features. One type is for even when the user has results for their search but there is a more popular, similar, term in your board's index. This can lead to better results. It also helps reduce typos. The other type is for when there are no results for their query, they will be presented with a list of similar terms that appear in your index.
Search Deleted Content
From the advanced search page, if a user has permission to see deleted content for some forums, they may search for deleted content.
Deleted search options:
- Exclude deleted
- Include deleted
- Only search deleted
The auto complete functionality does require your index to be deleted (and thus recreated) from the admin panel. It will not happen automatically on installation because I understand this might not be ideal. If you don't wish to use the auto complete functionality, you can delay deleting the index and the suggestions/did you mean features will still work.
I recommend using Add-on install & upgrade to install this add-on.
ElasticSearch Essentials 2.3.5
