Search results for queries with multiple words

    On our site, we have several PDFs being indexed. This may be an incredibly basic question, but we cannot seem to figure out how to configure the search results so that BOTH words in a search query must be in the PDF to show in the search results.

    For example, if I searched the name Dan Volitich, we want papers that have that full phrase, not just either Dan or Volitich, which is how the search currently behaves. Is there a setting within WPSOLR somewhere that ensures this?

    Have not yet received a reply…Please advise. How do we ensure AND logic rather than OR logic in the search results?

    Sorry, I missed your request.

    By default, WPSOLR uses the ‘AND’ operator.

    That doesn’t seem to be the default on our website (see link in original request). When multiple terms are included in a single search, it appears to be using OR logic.

    Did you select other options in screen 2.1, like “fuzzy” or “partial matching”?

    Neither of those options are selected.

    No boosts either?

    Can you try to execute you query in the Solr admin, and see what happens?

    There are boosts listed (type, author, title, and tags), but the checkbox at the top of that page to activate them is not checked.

    Also, this may be a silly question, but how do I execute a query in the Solr admin?

    Here is a screenshot of the Solr admin:

    How do I get to this place?

    localhost:8983/solr/#/ ?

    It depends where is your Solr server.

    We are running solr on a Windows 2012R2 Server and our website is WordPress. How do we search on the admin dashboard? The screenshot appears too small and cannot make out any of the text.

    Once you’re in your Solr dashboard:
    – select your index in the drop-down list
    – click on the left side “query” link
    – enter your keywords in the “q” text box

    The search is working properly from the Solr admin dashboard. Is there a way we can ask the search to make sure the two words are close to each other? All the papers coming up with the name “Dan Volitich” have a Dan in it, and a Volitich in it, but not Dan Volitich together.

    “Dan Volitich” should return first the documents with both words, then others.

    For both words separated by 4 words maximum:
    "Dan Volitich"~4
