I just replied to your other post concerning your search testing in Clearspace. The search feature is +supposed + to work as described here: https://jivespace.pdx-int.jivesoftware.com/help/search-tips.html?peopleEnabled=true&resultTypes=COMMUNITY&q=asfdasfd
And currently it doesn''t, hence the bug report here: http://www.jivesoftware.com/issues/browse/CS-1284
Hi Will --
I think that is an internal url...
My other note was a specific problem that I think has to do with Document tags not being correctly incorporated into a boolean statement.
This problem is a more strategic one -- the default search setting is OR, with results returned in seemingly random order.
Naive users expect Google-like behavior, which appears to be OR weighted by number of terms present, their proximity, pagerank, etc. I''m suggesting that not that search doesn''t work as specified, but that the specification should change to be more Google-like.
You should be able to see the document Will was describing by going to your Clearspace instance:
I haven''t tested this, but from looking at the code, I believe you can change the default search behavior to use ''AND''. Set a system property:
search.defaultOperator = AND
Let me know if that works.
Thanks! The default AND works substantially better for our users, and we are
already testing it, but I don''t think it is the right final solution.
My bigger point is that we need to rethink search in 2007. People expect it
to work like Google -- type in two or three keywords and get what you expect.
My current users have developed an opinion that Jive Forums search doesn''t
work well, and I''d hate for them to regard Clearspace search the same way.
has there been any updates on this subject matter or feature?
