Stop Words

Starting with the version 1.3, you can avoid indexing frequently used words (articles, pronouns, prepositions) to increase search speed and reduce volume of information stored in the search index. These words are called 'stop-words'.

Stop-words are defined at the indexing stage with the help of the special file containing the list of stop-words. For example:

- file: stopwords.txt ---------------

a

an

is

the

this

-------------------------------------

The name of the file containing stop-words is indicated in the Indexer configuration file in the parameter StopWordsFile, for example:

StopWordsFile                stopwords.txt

The web-site visitors can be informed about words being ignored in their search phrase with the help of the special symbol "%P" - stop-words will be displayed as shown in the figure:

stopwords

Word combination "Stop Words" can be changed for other definition (for example, when translating to the foreign language) by changing parameter StopWords in the configuration file of the search module (see cnsearch.conf).
