[EP-tech] Re: Change EPrint field type.



Hi,

Not sure if this could solve your problem but I have seen on the wiki that we could disable the full text indexing on text fields...

   http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Metadata

   text_index => If set to true the the indexer considers this field for full text indexing. Otherwise not.
                 Some types of metadata field have a default of true, for example text and longtext. 

Hope this helps a bit

Regards,
Gilles
