The search results list has changed in COYO version 28. The results are now sorted by segment and there are a maximum of three hits within the segments. You can also choose in what order the results should be shown within the segments: Sorted by relevance or by date. When sorting by date, the most recently changed or updated content is shown at the top within the segment.
If the content you are looking for is not in the top three, you can have the hits for the corresponding segment displayed using "Show all xx results".
By using further filters, you can further refine and limit your result.
The filter logic has also changed. In the future, you select a filter for each segment (type, changed, place, author) – this refines the list of hits and you can find the content you are looking for more quickly.
With version 28, you can also find the last change date by hovering the mouse over the time entry.
Weighting of the search results in COYOWhen you input a search query, the entire content of the search index is searched. A query is made for all content and its fields. A hit is shown as soon as the search term is found in one of these fields:
- Users (name, e-mail and all profile fields)
- Homepages (name, hashtags in the name and content of the homepages incl. hashtags)
- Pages (name, descriptions and translations)
- Communities (name and description)
- Files (name, description and file content)
- Blog articles (name, content, comments and teasers)
- List entries (name, content of the entry and comments)
- Wiki articles (name, content and comments)
- Timeline entries (author, destination, content of the entry, content of the share, comments and names of attachments)
- Apps (name and content)
- Chat histories in which you are a participant yourself (author, destination, message, and attachments)
- Comments (content)
- Events (name, description, and location)
- Forum entries (name, content, and attachments)
- Tasks (name and description)
- Frequency of occurrence of the search term in a field
- Frequency of the search term in the whole index (only relevant for several search terms)
- Length of the content
(Example: If the search term is found in a title, this finding is rated higher than if the term is found in a longer blog article, for instance)
As a result of the many factors and the different number of content items, no specific formula can be provided that calculates how important a single item of content is on the whole.
