Yes, that helped a lot!! Thank you!!

I tried that alone (without changing cirrusUseAllFields), and it produced very relevant results but appeared to downrank the main namespace. So the top hits were all in the File namespace, the Template namespace, etc.

Then I tried it together with cirrusUseAllFields=no, and the results were not as good as cirrusUseAllFields alone.

Thank you so much. I wouldn't have found this on my own.
