    Code is not readable in video, are you going to fix it for new videos?

  • Set "More Like This" Bundle Fields Not Searched by Default?

    by Lee Hildebrand,

    For this question, while you don't specifically mention the "More Like This" bundle in this presentation, based on Cell Journalist's mission I'm going to assume you have used it.

    At, the Fields parameter can exclude fields from being searched. That is cool, but is there any way to reverse the default such that only specified fields are searched? I appreciated RavenDBs ability to optimize frequent searches, but if I have 100 fields, instead of them all being searched by default and having to specify 99 of them not be searched, it would be nice to only have to specify the one I want.
