Sometimes folks have trouble with Verity search results not behaving quite as they expect. For example, searching for multiple keywords might be bringing back unexpected results.
The problem you might be facing is the historical Verity syntax. Verity requires you to put commas between multiple keywords.
In ColdFusion's Verity implementation:
- commas -> equivalent to putting OR bewteen keywords
- spaces -> equivalent to using PHRASE
to putting AND bewteen keywords
Note Verity was around before the major online search engines -- but now the accepted norm is spaces ->
OR AND (like Google)
Easiest thing you can do is just pretreat your search criteria and convert spaces to commas before you run your CFSEARCH -- your users won't know the difference then.
