How can I change field boosts

  2. Find /dp_select SearchHandler
  3. Specify boosts on fields in parameters such as qf param
    For example:
    part_number_search^1 universal_product_codes^0.7  vendor_part_numbers^0.7 cross_reference_parts^0.7  manufacturer_search^0.5 attr_search^0.5 description_search^0.4 vendor_descriptions^0.3  short_description^0.3 product_name^0.3 attributes^0.1 long_description^0.1 description_hl^0.01
  4. copy your changes to dp_suggest handler
