Default Re: Consider further search optimization, hesitate between MySQL LIKE and ▒FULL-TEXT▓

- the 4 symbols may be a troubled (as your example "cat") but still not a stopper especially if it can be changed

The way I had coded this before, is that if the term is less than 4 results it would do a like search and 4 or more it would do full text.
