CLIP from my whining about why the search doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t work in TW.
- to start this off can we at least agree on a couple things:
o standard search for - RED BALL would search on RED AND BALL
o TW does RED OR BALL Ã¢â‚¬â€œ which is WRONG!!
- BASIC search should be capable of:
o RED BALL = RED AND BALL
o Ã¢â‚¬Å“red ballÃ¢â‚¬Â = only match Ã¢â‚¬Å“red ballÃ¢â‚¬Â as quoted
o and then, maybe RED or BALL = RED OR BALL
with a little more digging and some input from marclaporte, redflow and mose I think I have figured out the problem:
- TW supports the concept of FULL TEXT SEARCH (FT)
- this allows user to (from example above) do a search like Ã¢â‚¬Å“+red +ballÃ¢â‚¬Â to achieve Ã¢â‚¬Å“red AND ballÃ¢â‚¬Â.
- but these is a bug in concept in searchlib - function _find()
- if FT is set then _FIND does the right thing by doing a MATCH AGAINST sql query
- HOWEVER Ã¢â‚¬â€œ if it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find any results it ALSO will do a simple (i.e. non-FT) search
o in concept this is silly since it defeats whole point of doing FT in the first place
o also, it generates an sql error because for simple search a REGEXP query is done which will choke on the + signs in the search string
BUG FIX SUGGESTION:
- remove code which does Ã¢â‚¬Å“simple search if no resultsÃ¢â‚¬Â
o at least make it optional
- as I have stated before Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the Ã¢â‚¬Å“NORMALÃ¢â‚¬Â concept of search IS my fixed version of FT search
- because of that the default search should be FT
o by that I mean Ã¢â‚¬Å“red ballÃ¢â‚¬Â should automatically do Ã¯Æ’Â FT Ã¢â‚¬Å“+red +ballÃ¢â‚¬Â without having to put + signs

Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
