Funnelback can use a document’s URL to filter the search results. The
scope CGI parameter will restrict the results to the document URLs that match the parameter.
For example, the query:
will query the shakespeare collection, but limit the results to those documents that come from the server called topaz.
Note that the scope is a sub-string match to the document’s URL.
scope is a comma-separated list of strings that are matched against the URLs of documents that match the query terms. You can negate the match by placing a minus-sign at the start of a string.
Protocols should not be included in the scoped search. E.g. Use 'www.funnelback.com' and not 'http://www.funnelback.com'.
Scopes are commonly used in search templates to:
restrict the search to a specific web site (or sub-site); or
allow the user to dynamically choose the site.
If you wish to hard-code the scope, then create a
hidden element to set the scope:
<input type="hidden" name="scope" value="cmis.csiro.au,-vic.cmis.csiro.au">
Otherwise, you could use a select list to set the scope:
<@s.Select name="scope" id="scope" options=["=All","macbeth=Macbeth","much_ado=Much Ado About Nothing","merchant=Merchant of Venice"] />
Note the first option All sets the
scope to an empty string, which means all documents.
The scope restriction:
will return documents whose URLs match company.com and exclude any that match shop.company.com
