|Administering the Community / Managing Search|
You can use the Admin Console to adjust user search performance and change the user experience.
You can enable searching for user information, or turn user searching off. Click Update to save a status setting.
The settings you make on the Search Settings tab are designed to adjust how people experience search, although some settings impact performance.
|Automatically index user changes||Set to "Yes" to have content added to the search index as soon as it's published, rather than waiting for the next index update time.|
|User index update time||How often the index is updated.|
You can improve searches for people using your community by tailoring the stop words and synonym lists to best suit your needs. For example, if you realize that people will search using slang common to your industry, you could add synonyms that associate a commonly used term with slang alternatives. A software industry example could be "programmer,developer".
To add synonyms, enter a pair of words separated by a comma in the Synonyms box, then click Add Synonym.
