This [dated but still valid post from DigitalOcean](https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-improve-database-searches-with-full-text-search-in-mysql-5-6-on-ubuntu-16-04) explains a lot about what MySQL's Full-Text Search (FTS) is doing behind the scenes. The [official docs](https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/fulltext-search.html) are also an important resource to read up on. The FullTextSearch Extra is managed on GitHub, and the [README](https://github.com/sepiariver/fulltextsearch) file provides additional, in-depth context about the FTS implementation for MODX.
