Im writing a forum app. I would like to know
what are some ways to find posts with similar content to a selected post.
(match certain important keywords, but not all words)

what is the most accurate way to do this?

can someone point me to the right direction.

Thank you.

You need to clearly define what "similar" means to you. If you're using SQL
Server as a back-end full-text search functionality might help you meet your
requirements.

blogs all the time.
such as "related topics" "similar posts" "suggested reading"
