Subject Re: query time boosting in solr
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2011 08:15:08 GMT
Can anyone throw some light on this issue?

My problem is to: give a query time boost to certain documents, which have a
field, say field1, in the range that the user chooses during query time. I
think the below link indicates a range query:


But, apart from that, how can I indicate a boost for the condition

I tried using a &bq=field1:[20 TO 25] and also &bq=field1:[20 TO 25]^10
-But I am not able to figure out what these two mean, from the results.
Because, i get top1 result as a document where field1 is this
case..after using &bq clause. I increased the boost to 10,20,50 100..but the
results dont change at all.
