Hi guys, Situation: There're lots of pages, and each is attached with certain number of tags. It's quite similar to delicious.com. For example, the following is a list of pages and their tags, the tag number marked in the parenthesis. page1: tag1(5) tag2(3) tag3(1) ... page2: tag1(1) tag2(2) tag3(4) tag4(2) ... page3: ... So, for page 1, it's tagged by 'tag1' for 5 times, 'tag2' for 3 times, and 'tag3' only once. Now I want to search for pages by giving a set of tags. Unlike traditional search, I want to differentiate the given tags by assigning weights. Here's what it looks like: Search query: tag1(2) tag3(1) So it means I value 'tag1' more than 'tag3'. Thus by firing this search, page1 shall be ranked higher than page2. By looking at ferret documentation, I found it's capable of boosting individual fields, or boosting individual documents, but it seems it's unable to boost by individual tokens. Is that really the case? If so, can anybody point out how can I implement the idea shown above?
