We are running Swish-e 2.4.3 on a news web site. Everything is working
great but I have two little issues that people keep asking about:
Question 1) Each of our news stories has a headline, company name, and
the story itself. When searching for a word I would like to make the
company name "rank" higher than if the word is found in the body copy.
In other words, if the user searches for "Park City" I would like a
story about Park City Towing to rank higher than a bunch of other
stories that happen to have "park" and "city" in the text.
I tried to set this up in the config file like so:
MetaNamesRank 10 company
MetaNamesRank 6 swishtitle
and the actual documents have headers like this:
<meta name="company" content="$companyname">
<meta name="pubdate" content="$pubdate">
<meta name="cid" content="$companyid">
So the question is, should this work? Do I need higher numbers in the
MetaNamesRank options? Am I missing some other config option?
Question 2) There are many company names that contain a hyphen, such as
Alpha-Medical Systems, or A-Top Company. If we include the hyphen in
WordCharacters a search on "A-Top" is found correctly, but Alpha is not
found as a separate word. If we remove the hyphen from WordCharacters
we can find Alpha, but not A-Top.
I've tried creating two indexes, one with a hyphen and one without, and
then merging them. But I got an error about different index types
(can't remember the exact phrase). Is there any other workaround that
would treat hyphenated words as both a single word and individual words?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
