I have a query which says

SELECT * FROM data WHERE MATCH (nike,trainers) AGAINST (brand,title,description)

What I want to do is extend that a bit to say that Nike can be 'Nike or Adidas' and trainers could be 'trainers or running shoes' or even 'trainers OR running shoes OR plimsoles'

Any ideas on the formatting of the query - or if it's even possible?

Many thanks in advance

is this mysql?

and... do you have a full-text index on those fields?

if so, check this out:

when crafting the query, you might need to replace " OR " with " ", "NOT" with "-", etc
