I created a plugin for the Namazu search engine (http://search.namazu.org/) and I ran into one trouble spot: To get the most results back, I needed to surround all my search terms with asterisks. For example, if I’m searching for:
I would want the agentQuery to be:
In the end, I couldn’t find a way to get DA to do this. Also note that I can’t just directly put the asterisks in in the default query itself because this causes the wrong text to be identified in the “Pages” tab. I played around with the secondary query as well but the results weren’t much better.
Here’s what I’m using right now that works as long as only a single search term is used (note that I have the necessary asterisks embedded directly in the URL):
<string>http://myserver/cgi-bin/namazu.cgi?query=*_agentQuery_*&submit=Search%21&idxname=archive&max=_agentNumber_&result=normal&sort=date%3Alate&whence=_agentOffset_</string> <key>LinksNotMatching</key> <array> <string>*namazu*</string> </array> <key>Start</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>OffsetPerPage</key> <integer>100</integer> <key>ResultsPerPage</key> <integer>100</integer> <key>OperatorsDictionary</key> <dict> <key>AND</key> <string>and</string> <key>OR</key> <string>or</string> <key>NOT</key> <string>not</string> </dict> <key>Operators</key> <integer>32827</integer> <key>PostScan</key> <false/>
Any ideas on how to get DA to work best with this search engine?
