Subject Re: Question about rating documents
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2009 19:27:43 GMT
Hmm, I already boost certain fields, but from what I know about it you
would need to know the boost value ahead of time which is not possible
as it would be a different boost for each document depending on how it
was rated..

I did think of one thing though.  If I had a field that had a value of
1-5 for each document, and took that and used it to then add a boost
to the fields I was actually searching on (or the final score) that
would probably work, is that possible?
