Subject Re: Field Boosting
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 12:38:40 GMT

Hi Daniel,

I faced the same problem a couple of days ago. I was trying to set the 
boost values while indexing, but the
results wasn't the expected. I've solved just putting the boost values 
in the search query, using the '^'
operator. There is an example:

((+text:house)^25.0) (+title:house)^40.0) (+hottext:house)^20.0)

Hope it helps
