Title: Search Engine Probleme
Post by: molux on May 14, 2007, 04:02:38 PM
Hy,

I have ? probleme to the forum search engine, i search Mintaka under this forum, and it doesn't find any port !
I manually search this theme, and i find it here:
http://www.overunity.com/index.php/topic,1754.0.html

Mintaka is spelled, (under url for exemple)

Why the search engine don't find it ?

It's not easy to find data under forum without this tools, can you do something ?

There is a difference between "minataka" and "mintakafulcrum".
With some engines, minataka* would find mintaka and anything
else tacked on the end, but Google doesn't do it.

Hello Paul-R,

I dont use google, i use the internal search engine, (look screenshot) and normaly (like phpBB, or other) find the part information naturally.

I try this:
mintaka
mintaka%
mintaka*
and nothing

(And it's a mistake, google fortunately find a part data...)

I think it simple to add this fonctionality to the serach engine with MySQL helper
(Or perhaps is a MySQL version Bugg's ? or Php.ini with an heuristic Magic Quot param ?) For me it's a bug, and it's not so easy to find if an information already poster under the forum. what all other forum can do that ?

When I have more time I will try to see,if I can change some caching for
the search.
This will increase the database very much, but you are correct,
it needs a bit of a tweak to find something like this...

Try in the meantime also the google search at the top of the forum page.

Hy Harti,

Thanks if you can do that, perhaps you can use/modify the finding SQL request to support the syntaxe of LIKE:

Exemple:

"SELECT .... WHERE post_title LIKE '%$keyword%' OR post_content LIKE '%$keyword%'...."

You have to filter $keyword to dont have som SQL injection
You can simple dont accept some special caracteres (used into SQL syntaxe) like " , ', =, LIKE, IN, %

Thanks for you great job Harti
