The functionality in fact is still present. It basically does not really change the way a hit is highlighted. In so far the option is poorly named. But what it does change is which part(s) of a result page get(s) displayed: Without $wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting set, irrelevant parts might show up while with $wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting set to true, the places of the exact hits are more likely to be displayed. I have updated the manual page accordingly. --Jörgi123 (talk) 22:08, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
