Article not found by search following amendment

Application Version - OJS

One of our editors made an amendment to an author’s surname in the metadata of an article from one of our journals. Since the update, the article does not appear if the title is searched with the OJS search function.
Does the editor just need to re-publish the issue to make it findable again? I would assume the platform needs this so that the information is up-to-date in each metadata record.

My apologies if this is a simple query that has been previously sought.
Many thanks.

Hi @MichelleM,

I would suggest re-indexing your installation:

php tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php

…then flushing your data cache as Site Administrator. Then try searching again to see if that resolves the issue.



Thanks Kate.
Will see what happens.
