Subject Re: How to boost documents ?

Hi Anca,

Can you try following URL?

q=beautiful Christmas tree&mm=2&qf=title^12 description^2&defType=dismax&bf=map(query($qq),0,0,0,100.0)&qq={!dismax
qf='title description' mm=100%}beautiful Christmas tree

Modified from Jan's solution. See his original post [1] to a similar discussion.

How to boost documents that contain all search terms in several of its fields ?

Below you cand find a simplified example : 

The query with Min should match:
q=beautiful Christmas tree&mm=2&qf=title^12 description^2

There are two offers that match the query : 
offer1 {title:"Christmas tree", description:"a joy for children"}

offer2 {title:"Christmas tree", description:"beautiful for holidays"}}

The first offer ranks before the second, despite of the fact that the second one contains
all the search terms. I tried to play with the boosts of qf, but the results vary a lot.

Is there a way to add a boost on all search fields, the same way we do with pf on one field
: pf=title:2^3.0 ?

Thank you,
