Spelling Blacklist

Introduction

Name

spelling_blacklist.cfg

Location

~/conf/COLLECTION/

Description

List of words or phrases which should never be presented as spelling suggestions. To access the Spelling Blacklist editor, go to administration home page then under the Administer tab select Browse Collection Configuration Files and it will open up the file manager. Then select spelling_blacklist.cfg from dropdown and it will navigate you to the Spelling Blacklist editor.

Background

Occasionally, misspelled or otherwise inappropriate words or phrases may appear in the automatically generated suggestion lists used by the Funnelback query suggestion mechanism. You can avoid this by adding the problem words or phrases to the spelling blacklist using the editor interface, and rebuilding the spelling index.

Each entry that appeared in this list during the last index will not be suggested as a replacement query. Suppressing undesired suggestions increases the chance that useful suggestions will be made.

Caveats

  • Changes made to this list will only be visible after the spelling index is rebuilt.
  • Spelling blacklists are supported on meta collections, however because meta collections are not updated, an update needs to be triggered on one of the component collections for the blacklist to apply.

Format

The list contains one query suggestion (word or phrase) per line, in lower case. Note that a line consisting of a single word will suppress that word as a suggestion but will not suppress phrases containing that word.

Example

imigration
goverment
goverment policy
fedral goverment
new south whales
aple
