Default search results configuration

This feature is not available to users of the Squiz Experience Cloud version of Funnelback.

Funnelback provides configuration options to control the default behaviour of the search results screens.

Domain to search mappings

Funnelback can automatically redirect or map specified domain names to a particular collection and profile combination automatically.

This means that several domains (eg., can be configured to reference the Funnelback server, with each one redirecting to a different search.

The redirects apply as soon as the redirects.cfg file is saved.

e.g. When someone visits redirect this to http://FUNNELBACKSERVER/s/search.html?collection=<COLLECTION>&profile=<MYPROFILE>.

Search defaults

Use this to set defaults for options including:

  • Number of results to return (num_ranks)

  • Summary mode (SM) and metadata fields to return (SF)

  • Results sort mode (sort)
