Which searches will currently find "King's
I think ideally that we want the middle one to work also.
Then I thought of the epic "King's Cross St Pancras".
definitely yes. i'd never really considered this in mudlondon. i think the
canonical epic comes with a 'St.' ;)
ave => avenue
ct => court
st => saint ...oops!
cute. hrmm, the redirect problem.
- you could implement something like symbolic links between pages
- a redirect in a little loop of code which looks for more known
special cases like 'kings', perhaps from a config file
- also allow the user to set alternaspellings when they create a page.
we did this for state51's music search. (and many artists may have alias
or changed names)
is that overcomplicating? this does look like a tricky one.
the opinion of a search strategy person would be interesting.
