Questions on tokenized x untokenized and date sorting


#1

Gents, does this definition will allow me to search inside title,
sub_title and url and sort by score, rank_sort, last_updated_at_sort ?

acts_as_ferret :fields => { :title => {:boost => 2, :store => :yes},
:sub_title => {:store => :yes},
:url => {:store => :yes},
:rank_sort => {:index => :untokenized},
:last_updated_at_sort => {:index =>
:untokenized_omit_norms, :term_vector => :no}},
:remote => true

def rank_sort
begin
return self.rank_links.to_i
rescue
return nil
end
end

def last_updated_at_sort
begin
self.last_updated_at.to_i
rescue
return nil
end
end

looks good. Be sure to specify :int as the sort type when you sort
by rank_sort or last_updated_at_sort, or left-pad the values to a fixed
length with ‘0’.
