Index Stop Words

The IDOL Content component does not normally index stop words, but you can index them by using the StopWordIndex configuration parameter in the [LanguageTypes] section of the configuration file. For example:


Queries match stop words only in a phrase, as shown in the following examples.

Query Result
winnie the bear Content ignores the stop word the, as usual.
"winnie the bear" Content includes the stop word the in the exact phrase search and matches it.
copy of "winnie the bear" Content ignores the stop word of, but matches the within the phrase.

Wildcard search terms do not expand to stop words, even in phrases.
