Search&Promote 8.9.3 Release Notes (11/01/2012)

New features and enhancements
Description
Facet Rail
Added the new Facet Rail option to help give you greater control over the ordering of facet families and facet names (by count, alphabetical).
Nested facets
Added support for alternate sorting of nested facets.
Notes field in ranking rules
Added a multi-line Notes field to the Add Ranking Metric dialog box and the Edit Ranking Metric dialog box for ranking rules and rule group definitions.
Ranking rule notes are displayed on the Define Ranking Rules page. Rule group notes appear when you edit the definition.
Business rules
Improved landing page support by removing natural results in a business rule using the new Remove All Results option.
Use this new option in conjunction with other business rule actions to create "canned landing pages." That is, you want to create a page's content by business rule actions exclusively and you need to discard the "natural" results of the search.
Banners and business rules
Added a support option where you can conditionally opt out pushing banners live when the business rule that references the banner is pushed live.
Fixes
  • Business rules worked inconsistently when there was a Stage index.
  • Autoranking rules are now applied to canned landing pages.
    See the table of options in Adding a ranking rule .
  • promosearch.cgi was not returning promotions.
  • Pushing rules that referenced many banners sometimes failed.
  • Did You Mean search query caching is now disabled.
