    Search Relevance

    I am trying to configure my search relevance scores to weight threads with a title match higher than a message match.

    For example a simple search (from the navbar) for "monkey" should bring up all the threads with monkey in the title, before monkey in the message.

    I have fulltext search and boolean enabled.

    I also have the title weight to 60000 and the post title weight to 5000. I have the multi-word score to 5000 too.

    DO I need to reindex after I change these settings?

    My searches have not changed since I changed the settings. The threads with Monkey in the title are not showing up first.

    Those options are only for the default search engine. I am not sure how to adjust those things for fulltext. I am asking the others about this.

        I am told there is no way to adjust these options for fulltext. It is all handled by MySQL.

              Are there any conversations on the board about the difference between the vbulletin search and the fulltext search. I switched to the fulltext search so that I could have boolean search and allow people to do exact searches. I'm unclear as to the pros and cons of each. Is there any place where this is explained? Thanks for helping answer my question. I'm one of those guys who takes search very seriously.

                See this thread for fulltext features.

                The default search system is just a word search without any special operators.
