Subject Re: OR query

You're using query and filter query backwards - the query is what you are 
looking for (the OR), while the filter query is the constraint on the 
query - the drill down.

Thanks, I've tried doing

<lst name="params">
<str name="wt">xml</str>
<str name="fq">
(constituencies:(ian paisley) OR label:(ian paisley) OR office:(ian
<str name="q">name_long:"paisley, ian"</str>
<result name="response" numFound="0" start="0"/>


<str name="fq">+ian +paisley "paisley, ian"</str>
<str name="q">name_long:"paisley, ian"</str>

But neither return any results
