No Titles in smart search / finder

Post by jorlan » Fri Jun 18, 2021 12:25 pm

Could it be true that the titles no longer count in the search results of smart search? Since the last Joomla update, I think.

I discovered today: If a keyword is only in the title, the article will not show up in the search results.
The 'Title Text Weight Multiplier' (Smart Search Configuration) is 1.7 by default; so that's not a cause.

Can anyone reproduce this? Is this a bug? Or was this already the case and is the idea that only keywords count that are also in article body?

At first glance I had not expected this to be relevant. Thanks for your tip Brian! It solves the mentioned problem.
