MUCH, MUCH BETTER!!!  THANK YOU!!!!

 

Apart from speed…not unusual for it to take 30-45 seconds to return results but 
that was true on the other as well.   Is this normal or should someone be 
looking into how things are configured?  While not blazing fast the OPAC is 
usually much better.

 

Thanks again.

 

Jim

Hello Jim,

 

I think you may have discovered a bug.  By default, the search is already doing 
relevance ranking, so you don't need anything extra there.  However, it seems 
that the search 'class' is being more or less ignored; at least it does not 
trigger a title search in your example.  You are just getting relevance ranked 
'keyword' search.

 

The following variation looks like it will honor the title index:

 

http://evergreen.asburyseminary.edu/opac/extras/opensearch/1.1/ATS/marcxml-full/?ti=Bible+in+Mission
 
<http://evergreen.asburyseminary.edu/opac/extras/opensearch/1.1/ATS/marcxml-full/?ti=Bible+in+Mission&count=25>
 &count=25

 

Does this get you closer?

 

Sincerely,

Dan

I have still been trying but none of these options or anything else I can find 
sorts by relevance like the OPAC.   Is there not any way to do a search and get 
relevant results at the top of the list?

Thanks.

Jim,

You might try using the slimpac interface to do some searches and see how to 
build OpenSearch URLs in Evergreen:
http://evergreen.asburyseminary.edu/opac/en-US/extras/slimpac/start.html
-- that interface sits directly on top of OpenSearch, and just uses an XSLT to 
transform the ATOM output to HTML.

Since you've looked at opensearch.org <http://opensearch.org> , you probably 
know about OSD files.  Yours is at 
http://evergreen.asburyseminary.edu/opac/extras/opensearch/1.1/ATS/-/osd.xml
and it can help you construct URLs as well.

Note, if you're searching for a specific phrase, you can enclose it in double 
quotes to make sure you get the title you are looking for.

Finally, OpenSearch uses the same backend for searching as the OPAC, you'll 
just need to construct the URLs a little differently.

HTH,
