Subject Re: Kate Winslet vs Winslet Kate
Date Sun, 01 Nov 2015 05:21:46 GMT
Thanks for the reply. Putting the name: before the terms did the work. I
just wanted to generalize the search query because users might be
interested in querying Kate Winslet herself or her movies. If user enter
query string "Kate Winslet movie", the query q=name:(Kate AND Winslet AND
movie) will return nothing.
