Search for numbers

Post by tschwinn12 » Wed Jan 25, 2012 5:34 pm

Searching for numbers doesn't seem to work or maybe it that is normal?

I have an entry of 29304 and 7.0.29304 in same faq article. Also 29304 in faq topic.

If I do a search for 29304 nothing comes up. If I do a search for 7.0.29304 it works.

is there a way to make it search numbers better?

Hi,

if you search for numbers phpMyFAQ searches for the solution IDs. Every FAQ has an own unique solution ID.

Hi,
Got same problem, please is there any solution to patch this while waiting for an update ?
If I understood it well, numeric searches are redirected to solution id field, can we just disable this, and let it search in content field ?

edit:
Solved with this patch:

Code: Select all

if (is_numeric($inputSearchTerm) && PMF_SOLUTION_ID_START_VALUE <= $inputSearchTerm && 
    1 < $faqSearchResult->getNumberOfResults()) {
    
    // Before a redirection we must force the PHP session update for preventing data loss
    session_write_close();
    if (PMF_Configuration::getInstance()->get('main.enableRewriteRules')) {
        header('Location: '.PMF_Link::getSystemUri('/index.php') . '/content' . $inputSearchTerm . '.html');
    } else {
        header('Location: '.PMF_Link::getSystemUri('/index.php') . '/index.php?content=' . $inputSearchTerm);
    }
    exit();
}
Everything works perfectly now :)

It wont work if You use only numeric term in search box. For me it worked, since I use it for error codes description, hence for example, "error code 0x25" gives accurate result, plus numeric term also gets highlighted.
But, if You enter only number, nothing will be returned. This is why I've told it's a patch.

Basically, above posted patch redirects numeric term search into content field in faqdata table, and not the solution_id field.

Hi there,

I´ve tried the patch solution from legija without luck (change done on the search.php file). Any update on that issue? We´re documenting several issues by error number and so on we´re unable to search for them using the error number at all.

I´ve opened as well a change request in github just in case.

Kind Regards,
Joaquín
