Weighted Search Plugin? (7 posts)

    does anyone know a plugin which displays the search results weighted or ordered by percentage and not ordered by date desc?
    I think about a search which weights a word found in a title more than a word found in a comment or post...

    I knew this plugin, but it uses Boolean-Mode which my mysql-server doesnt support...
    Is there a way to change this plugin, that it does weighted search without boolean commands?

    Yes. Find the part that says IN BOOLEAN MODE and remove it.

    However, beau, didn't you say in your blog Comments?

    You can remove the “IN BOOLEAN MODE� portion from the plug-in which is supported to use basic MySQL FULLTEXT which, I believe, is available in MySQL versions 3.x. However, from my experiences, the results from such a setup are actually worst than the standard WordPress searching function."

    Dgold Yeah, you're right. I didn't do extensive testing though.
