the 245 indicators are 0 0 on all three. I tried 'or the band played
on' with no success either.
I did install koha on a freshly installed openSUSE 11.3 32-bit system
with no change in the results.
When people say to turn stopwords off, is that 'Ignore' or 'Don't
ignore'? Shouldn't make a difference, since it's not supposed to apply
I just tried to search on 'and' and got nothing with either setting of
the QueryRemoveStopwords preference.
At this point I'm stumped. I guess I'll just have to tell my librarians
to not use the word 'and' in searches.
