Search not working

Postby pythonjosh » Tue May 29, 2018 1:01 pm

Steps to reproduce:
Search string: Our World
Returns many results including "Our World"
Expected result:
Results should have included: Our World (2007)

Also cannot search for 3 character strings. Namely BBC, NHK, ITV.

Both of these searches worked in the previous version of the site.

ElasticSearch is not yet implemented.
Basic searches should have as much of the title as possible to get the best results from the current algorithm.
Strangers are just the friends we haven't met yet.

agh - this explains why I can never find anything with BBC in the title ("Live from the BBC" as an example). However "Live from" also does not work. I got there in the end by guessing the URL correctly https://www.thetvdb.com/series/Live-From-The-BBC
