To set the default search behavior to partial word search:
- Open the index.htm and locate the configuration section.
- Locate the code for Set search results to match partial words by default.
<!-- Set search results to match partial words by default -->
<!-- Note: this setting will apply regardless whether the 'Match partial words' showing or not -->
<input id="matchPartialWordsInResult" type="hidden" value="false" />
- Change the value in the input line from false to true.
<input id="matchPartialWordsInResult" type="hidden" value="true" />
- Save the changes to the index.htm file.
When the Match partial words check box is not selected, Web Help uses exact word searching.
Recommended setting for Web Help
For these languages, partial word search should be set as the default option for the Web Help output. The default option is set in the index.htm. Set this option for all output languages by updating the index.htm file in your Templates folder (this applies the setting to all publishing jobs), or apply the option to individual publishing jobs by setting the option in the index.htm file created in your published output folder.
When the Match partial words check box is selected, Web Help uses the Partial Word Search functionality for users.
