Subject Re: SOLR complex queries misunderstanding
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:11:56 GMT
Hello Nick,

First of all, if you don't understand the results ask Solr to explain by
debugQuery=true. The output is reeeeaally verbose and puzzling. That is.
Then, I guess you tries to implement something like 'refinement', filtering
aka faceted navigation. Try to supply the filtering clause via fq=.. .
Filter queries don't influence scoring. eg fq=(text:(specific) OR
title:(specific))&q=(text:(first long query) OR
title:(first long query))
If I get your question right, you are puzzled by the
weighting/normalization, which works pretty puzzling for multiple clauses
queries with deep nesting. That is.
