[resolved] Title gets no boost (7 posts)

    Obviously my titles were not involved in search. When I search for a certain word or phrase, posts with the exact same word/phrase are not the top results. When I flip through the pages they appear somewhere (if it's in their post content), but not on top of the first page. It almost seems to me, as if only post content were included in search. Could that be? How to fix that?

    Well, it should not happen... Try increasing the title boost to something like 500 or so, and see if that helps.

    Nah, 5 is just the default value, and not a very big value either.

    I'm having the same problem. I have a custom post type titled "Series 60". When I search "series 60", it shows up on like the fourth page. I adjusted the title weight to be 100000, and it still only shows up on the second page. Help!

    Thanks

    What is your minimum word length for indexing? Is it the default 3? In that case the "60" simply does not matter in your search, which may explain why other posts get ahead.

    That fixed the problem. Thank you.
