IDOL search does not index stop words. If you are searching for words that are in the stop words list IDOL will not be able search for them. If you require search capability for certain words that are in the stop words list then you will need to remove them from the stop words list and re-index your site.
To modify the search engine stop words:
1. Open Windows Explorer and browse to the <dshome>\IDOLServer\IDOL\langfiles\<language>.dat
Where <dshome> is replaced with the installation directory for DocuShare. Depending on your installation environment the path may vary. The default installation path is C:\Xerox\Docushare.
Where <language> is replaced with the language.
2. Make a copy of the <language>.dat file and call it <language>.dat.orig
3. Open the <language>.dat file in a text editor.
4. Add or remove words from the list of stop words.
5. Save the changes that were made to the file.
6. Restart DocuShare
Note: Step 7 can be performed at a later time if necessary, as performance might be degraded if the dsindex_all is ran during production hours. The completion time for an index to run depends on your environment and the amount of data in DocuShare.
7. From command prompt in the <dshome>\bin directory run dsindex index_all
Note: The DocuShare site must be re-indexed after modifying the stop words list to have IDOL update the indexes.
The default English stop words are listed below.
Note: To view a list of English stop words open the <DSHOME>/IDOLServer/IDOL/langfiles/english.dat file. If you re
