Adding full-text index to database

Hello all,
Would it cause any problem if I add a FULLTEXT index on setting_value in article_settings table?
I need it to search for similar article titles and find whether a manuscript has been previously submitted with a similar title.
We are using OJS 2.4.6.


Hi @alirezaaa,

Yes, adding a new setting to the article_settings table shouldn’t cause problems.
