SharePoint 2013 Search Results Incomplete

Daniel 21 Reputation points

I have not been able to put a finger on why this is happening but we do not seem to be getting all the results displayed when we search for an item in our document library with a partial title. Please see screenshots below;

Documents we are searching for


Searching with just "Pamphlet"


Searching with entire title


The documnts are there and search knows about them however they all do not show.

    Thank you this appears to have fixed the issue... There were some other issues in there around where the search was going for its results page however I have resolved this with a temporary fix until we move to SharePoint Online.

    Kind Regards,
