How do I allow searches for answers by a_id?
All versions, Answers
To enable searching by a_id, set the SRCH_ANS_ID configuration to 1. Note that this is the default.
To change configurations refer to Answer ID 1960: Editing Configuration Settings.
Answer a_ids can be indexed automatically or added manually to the text of an answer.
The SRCH_ANS_ID configuration enables the automatic indexing of each answer by a_id. For example a search for "53" will return answer a_id 53 and any answer in which the text "53" is contained.
Please note that text inside links (anchor tag) is not indexed in the product. Therefore if an a_id is contained in a link it will not appear as a search term for that answer.
Refer to the "Answer ID 1960: Editing Configuration Settings" answer link above. The text "1960" would not be indexed as it occurs in a link.
Refer to the same link below. In this example the text "1960" is indexed as it does not occur in the link.
