Searches for full URLs or hostnames don't match weblinks

Reported by Walter McGinnis | September 29th, 2008 @ 11:45 AM | in 1.3 (closed)

If you enter a URL into search field, such as "http://kete.net.nz/" no matching web links are returned, even though one exists.

The same for hostnames with out protocol, such as "kete.net.nz".

However, "kete" or "net" or "nz" will work or a search like "http and kete and net and nz" will to.

The reason has to do with zoom/zebra treating periods as word separators like whitespace.

    • Tag changed from weblinks, zebra, zoom to urls, weblinks, zebra, zoom
    • State changed from “new” to “to-review”

    A few changes to overcome this:

    • added a "u" index (a speciality index type for URLs) on dc_subject index in Zebra configuration
    • added a search that specifies to use the "u" when searching web links
    • removed the truncation (@attr 5=103) from relevance configuration in pqf queries

    The truncation was triggering Regexp handling on the Zebra side and thus dots were being viewed as wildcard characters rather than actual dots. In my quick testing, the truncation setting seemed to make little difference since we weren't actually taking advantage of the Regexp features.

    This needs some further review, but likely the work is finished for this to be declared fixed.
