More features and advanced ways to effectively use Gear Lama.
Phrases - Multiple Terms in Order ("")
Gear Lama can also search for phrases, ensuring that multiple terms appear together in order. Phrase search with "" is the narrowest search query and returns the most specific yet lest number of results. A great place to start, when searching for specific items.
Will search for "Shimano Sora" in this specific order. Try it (opens in new tab).
Will return products where "9 speed" occurs together. It will not search forproducts where "9" and "speed" occur in different places in text. Try it (opens in new tab).
Required Terms (AND)
Gear Lama supports breaking the query into multiple terms and requiring them all to match. By default, Gear Lama is configured to treat any part of the query a required parameter, making the following identical:
Shimano AND chain
Shimano & chain
Will return products that contains both Shimano and chain. Try it (opens in new tab).
Optional Terms (OR)
Lama also supports the OR operator, which means that either the part of the query preceding or the part of the query following the OR is required to exist in any documents matched.
Heini OR jersey
Will return documents that contains either Heini or jersey. Try it (opens in new tab).
Range searching (TO)
Gear Lama provides the ability to search for terms that fall between known values. E.g. Find all products priced between ₹1,000 and ₹1,200:
price:[1000 TO 1200]
Try it (opens in new tab).
This can be combined with the search query E.g. Find All Polygon bikes priced between ₹30,000 and ₹60,000:
Polygon AND price:[30000 TO 60000]
Try it (opens in new tab).
Fuzzy Matching / Wildcard Searching (*)
Fuzzy matching is defined as the ability to perform inexact matches on terms. For example, someone may want to search for any words that start with a particular prefix (known as wildcard searching) e.g. To find any products that start with Poly or all products that end with "onia".
Will return all products that end with the text - onia. Try it (opens in new tab).
Unsure Spelling Search (~)
Gear Lama allows flexibility for handling spelling errors or even slight variations in correct spellings. If you're not sure of the spelling add a ~ at the end and Lama handles the spelling check for you. E.g. This search will find Effecto Mariposa products even when we've mis-spelt it (used a 'c' instead of a 'p').
Will return all products that are close to the spelling Maricosa. Try it (opens in new tab).
