This has now been implemented in 1.6.1.
Just as a note for people reading this thread and not wanting to read the issue 😄
Recently, I setup a forum with nodebb, the users are Chinese, so the posts are in Chinese. An important feature is the search page. I have activated this db search plugin. https://github.com/barisusakli/nodebb-plugin-dbsearch
Then I get this very fancy search page.
BUt the truth is the search does not work. I test it with a Chinese post and a English post, both return wrong results after hitting search button.
So, first, does this plugin support Chinese ?
Second, what is the right way to make it work, any index should be done manually ?
I think I know how to use this plugin now.
there is an indexing page for this plugin, I just found it and trigger it, then the search works for english.
Maybe it does not support Chinese out of box, I have tested it. How to make it work with Chinese ?
The underlying dependency makes it difficult to support Chinese. Looks like you have it working with the Solr plugin now.
