DokuWiki has a full-text search function which now also supports Asian languages. However, searching Asian language texts still has some problems.

The problems are that:

  • DokuWiki 2009-02-14
    • Search result highlightings are a bit too fragmented
    • An ideographic space (U+3000) in a search query is treated not as a search term separator, but as a character itself
  • DokuWiki 2010-11-07 “Anteater”
    • No search result snippet appears when searched with Asian words

This plugin solves these problems.


There are no configuration options for this plugin.
