Full Text Search

FullTextSearch means that the actual text of all pages searched is read and compared to the character pattern that the user wants to search for. This is computationally expensive.

ProWiki supports this feature because the simpler WordSearch is often not flexible enough to be of good use when you actually author a wiki (you may need to search for some code or markup or variations or some part of a word).

Note: FullTextSearch is too expensive if you have millions of users and hundreds of thousands of pages. But this is not the typical wiki situation. ProWiki is built for the 99.9% of wiki systems which have only some thousands of pages and users or less.
