Using weights:

You can specify what parts of a document are to be indexed and taken into account in weight calculation. To assign specific weights to various parts of a document, you have to edit search.htm search template.

It is possible to pass "wf" HTML form variable to search.exe. "wf" variable represents weight factors for specific document parts. Currently body, title, keywords, description, url are supported.

"wf" value is a string of hex digits ABCDE. Each digit is a factor for corresponding bit in word weight.

E is a factor for weight 1 (URLWeight bit)
D is a factor for weight 2 (BodyWeight bit)
C is a factor for weight 4 (TitleWeight bit)
B is a factor for weight 8 (KeywordWeight bit)
A is a factor for weight 16 (DescWeight bit)


  • wf=00001 will search through URLs only.

  • wf=00100 will search through Titles only.

  • wf=11100 will search through Title, Keywords, Description but not through URL and Body.

  • wf=F9421 will search through:

              Description with factor 15  (F hex)
              Keywords with factor 9
              Title with factor  4
              Body with factor 2
              URL with factor 1

If "wf" variable is omitted in the query, original weight value is taken to sort results. For a given above weight configuration it means that document description has a most big weight 16.

Mirrors tab in Server settings

mnoGoSearch indexer can save copies of indexed documents and their HTTP headers on the local system. To turn this feature on, check Use mirrors flag, specify mirroring period in seconds and specify folders to store documents and HTTP headers.

Configuring multiple servers

You may want to specify similar parameters to a group of servers in your list. To do so, select two or more servers in the list by pressing and holding Ctrl button. Once you have selected the servers, press Edit settings button and Server settings (Group) dialog will appear:

It is similar to Server settings dialog, except for the buttons next to each parameter. If a button is pressed, it means that the present parameter if changed applies to all the servers of the selected group. If the button is not pressed, the parameter will not be changed.

Importing servers

To import servers press Import servers button and select a text file that contains a list of servers.

Every string of the file contains settings (URL, server name, server alias, etc.) for one server. There are as many strings as the number of servers you want to import. The format of strings:

ServerURL  Name  Alias  Parameter1:Value1  ...   ParameterN:ValueN 

Fields may be delimited with tab sign, semicolon or any other item separation symbol you want (select delimiter you use in Import servers dialog). All parameters except "ServerURL" are optional.
