"TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB."
This is the default behavior in search engines like Google

Also reported here: [tiki-view_tracker_item.php?itemId=166]

I have found that, if I want to find something on tw.o sites, I should disregard TW's search feature and use Dogpile to look things up. The TW search capability is so weak that it is almost "a missing feature." At the very least, "TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB." The plus/minus markers are fine if you're in the know, but they don't work well either. Using the category/group filters renders a whole different set of answers; not GOOD answers, just different. Without those filters, unauthorized users see parts of pages they are not supposed to see at all. Not a missing feature, a broken feature.

Gosh, I hate to be so negative.

File Directory search indexing space sensitive
Text search on files is not usable in 2.0RC4. Table tiki_files "search data" is empty. Files were uploaded, then I defined MIME types, then reindexed. I clicked on "Reindex all files for search" in Admin>File Galleries but can't tell if anything happened; nothing is in Tiki Logs (I already know there is no code for Debug Console to show what Admin>File Galleries is doing). I defined the MIME filters in http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Search+Admin&bl=n

This apparently sometimes works. In my "trunk" development system I have different text/.doc files uploaded and those were reindexed after I defined the MIME types.

UPDATE: I had trailing spaces in the MIME type names and the filter commands, due to cut-and-paste behavior. I request that trailing spaced be trimmed from the MIME filter input fields.

TikiWiki 2.0: Filtering Search Results
Our site has a lot of child pages that are included by parent pages. When accessed individually, they make much less sense than if they are accessed as part of the parent page that includes them.

Is there a way to restrict the Search functionality of TikiWiki to only return pages that meet a certain criteria? Eg, pages that would be in the format tiki-index.php?page=Title/PageGroup

I have referred to the tiki-admin.php?page=search page but could not find anything that fit the bill.

workaround to open ticket #2188
This is a workaround for the bug described below. We just had this same problem occur in Tiki Wiki 6.3. Our Architect looked at the code and said the search wasn't recognizing the pages' language. I turned off the multilingual feature that I just turned on last week (May 31, 2011), and our search function worked normally again.

This is a cut and paste of the following open bug I found that describes this problem:

Status open
Rating (1)
Ticket ID 2188
Subject Search function does not work when tiki-searchindex.php is first invoked
Submitted by Geoff Brickell
Priority 9 high
Category Bug: Error
Tiki Version 2.x
Feature Search
Description Using the Search link in the application menu invokes tiki-searchindex.php which does not return any results no matter what you search for.

Having had a 'failed' search you are however now at tiki-searchresults.php and all subsequent searches work fine.

When you use the Search box module you fill in the form and the form 'action' is to run tiki-searchresults.php - and so this works fine.

This was previously logged as id 1696 - but this flagged the problem as a usability problem with the tiki support site rather than a possible coding bug - so have submitted this again.

Separator in the menu bar shows over the search input
Here are two screen shots.

The screen shots are showing exactly what my search text box looks like: right in the middle, I see a separator.

In French: {img type="src" src="http://tiki.org/display281"}

In German: {img type="src" src="http://tiki.org/display282"}

When I am browsing in French, the search engine textarea shows a separator pipe right in the middle.

It has nothing to do with my screen size (Cntrl + or minus), I tried.

Does any one else sees the same?

It's cumbersome. Of course it has to do with the restricted amount of caracters that one person can use when writing a menu. In english I don't see it.

The second screen shot shows the same prob in German language.

This prob is not new. It's just me who took a long time to report it or others are seeing the same?

Peharps you can tell me if I need to do something on my browser side

In the Community environment/universe (whatever you call it) it's OK

Ability to have a more in depth in search stats

Allow integrated search results from other Tikis (or other search sites)
It would be nice if visitors to info.tikiwiki.org could search all of the tw.o domains at once. What I envision:
1. A user goes to info.tw.o and searches for "WYSIWYG"
2. Tiki searches all of the *.tw.o domains and presents the results to the user, breaking the results by domain (e.g., all of the doc pages, dev pages, etc.)

Currently, the search results page will provide a box for users to extend their search to other tw.o domains, but (IMHO) it really needs to be automatic. See http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-searchindex.php?highlight=wysiwyg&where=pages&search=go for an example.

Maybe this could be expanded to fetch search results from other, non-Tiki search engines, too.

*before if you were clicking on the column headers, which function is to allow to sort the displayed list, you where generating a crash by an SQL request error.
Somebody have done something.

*Now : When you use this feature the list is simply cleared (if error then return).

Either this tool is without any interest for development or not at all.
If it is without interest it must be suppressed...
if not it must normally function even simply.
Actually the function are very simple but they don't functions.

!!The list sort problem : a display simply cleared...

If it is, anybody can understand that the impossibility to sort a list which is always displayed as playing card poker, makes impossible any revue of a subject.

This is the main problem.

!!Minimum enhancements in my opinion
__A really minimum list :__
*Display the "id" and the "author"
*Display a full date (the day)
*Allow a direct access by the "id"
*Allow selection by check box and display only checked items
*Send by mail the current list
*Optionally send by mail the content of an id

This could allow to check this list...

double/useless security check in "search entire site" gives unexpected results
Hello, if I search an "entire site" I expect a search in all sections and as result all objects where I have the correct object permission. But this search is implemented with an inconsistent double permission check.

The "entire site" search fist checks the global view permission in each section. If this is true, the search is sent to the search engine of the section, which gives back results depending on the object permission.

As the default search is "entire site" (can be changed via template), all users without the global view permission in the sections get back an empty result-set. A click on the section search button reveals the searchresult depending on the object permission of the section.

This is somehow between a bug and a feature.

As far as I can tell, the solution to show "entire site" search results according to object permissions is very easy.

FT vs Tiki search problem
While setting up Tiki 6.0 (upgrading from an earlier version) I found that if you enable Full Text Search but not Tiki search, search is treated as a disabled feature on the admin pages.

full text search is busted
CLIP from my whining about why the search doesn’t work in TW.

#1 - why isn’t there a proper SEARCH ?

- 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 – which is WRONG!!

- BASIC search should be capable of:
o “red ball” = only match “red ball” 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 “+red +ball” to achieve “red AND ball”.
- 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 – if it doesn’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

This makes if very difficult for a user to determine if the page is relevant to their search.

It would be nice if some of the simpler formatting was displayed, e.g. bold, code blocks, underlining, etc. to make the results more legible to the user.

Pages not found on search
v7.1 & 7.2

Searching Wiki pages does not return expected results.

*It appears that the default search only searches part of the page text and not the titles.
The search does not return pages from a structure that I know have the search phrase displayed on the page. When this happens I usually get an empty "List Wiki Pages" with "Exact match" checked (I don't know what the exact trigger of this is but it occurs most often while searching titles). Unchecking this will then return results. It would be nice to have "exact match" be an option -- not the default -- on the admin page to reverse this behavior.
*No search will return a match for text in a structure alias name, even though the text is display to the user.

I setup a test structure like this:
Page 1 -> Page One
Page 2 -> Page Two
Page 3 -> Page Three

The text on each page was "Now is the time for all good men"

Searching for "Three" returned nothing.
Searching for title "Three" returned nothing.
Searching for "Page" returned all three pages.

It seems to me that a user would be typing into the search box a word or phrase that they expected to be on a page, whither it be a title, alias or text and would therefore expect a search of "the entire site" to return one or more pages that display some form of their text without having to click on several buttons.

After a search (general by text) the beginning of text which is displayed is not decoded-re-encode for the context.

Zend_Search_Lucene doesn't work on certain servers
To reproduce, search "wiki" in the admin panel here:

And you will get:
"No preferences were found for your search query."

Ideally, the problem is solved, but this is maybe tricky. It could be related to:

{QUOTE(replyto="http://framework.zend.com/manual/1.11/en/zend.search.lucene.index-creation.html")}"Zend_Search_Lucene uses flock() to provide concurrent searching, index updating and optimization. According to the PHP » documentation, "flock() will not work on NFS and many other networked file systems. Do not use networked file systems with Zend_Search_Lucene."{QUOTE}

At the very least, Tiki should detect and report to the site admin that he should use MySQL Full Text Search instead.

Ideally, MySQL Full Text Search would work for tiki-admin.php

__unified_incremental_update doesn't check for feature_search__

Unified Search with Lucene is awesome and is "the future of Tiki".

Now, on certain server configurations, it doesn't work well. An easy workaround is to simply revert to the legacy MySQL Full Text Search.

However, even when using MySQL Full Text Search, unified_incremental_update is defaulted to yes, and tried to update Lucene index, and generates an error message

Workaround is to deactivate unified_incremental_update, or even better, upgrade to 12.x and use Unified Index, with MySQL as storage.
Update: this issue has been reproduced in 12.x svn (and untested in 14.x so far, afaik) also with Mysql Full Text Search as unified search engine (on a multitiki install). See: [item5673] . {sign user="xavi" datetime="2015-05-19T09:10:57+00:00"}

9x: Search box in Relations tracker field doesn't find items with apostrophe in name
We have a couple of tracker field type "relations" in a tracker, showing other items from the same tracker, and it displays a search box at the left of the dropdown box.
when we filter for item which have an apostrophe (single quote: '), the filter doesn't seem to find them. Without apostrophe, it does.
I.e., imagine that we have these two items (without the star):

* foo bar
* foo bar'2 foo bar foo bar

if we search for "foo", we find just the first one, not the second.

Apostrophes are very common in Catalan, as they are in French and other languages (in English it can be tested against items with names such as this onem, which has the word "doesn't" in purpose ;-).

Make tracker comments searchable
Comments to tracker items can be very a useful way to gather ideas, code snippets, links, etc. from the community regarding an a problem or an idea.

It would therefore seem to be natural to include tracker comments in search - otherwise there is a risk of losing valuable community contributions in a black hole of tracker comments.

Tracker comments should of course be included in "Entire Site", and maybe even have their own search category.

New module: search page name, search text, edit page
In the early days of TikiWiki, we used a bunch of modules (last_modified_wiki_pages, last_articles, Last this, Last that, etc.) to show recent changes to visitors. We ended up with many modules and it was cluttered.

All this became a lot better once the "Since your last visit" module came around to adding all the features. As a bonus, it checks permissions and shows the information since the user's last login. Very sweet.

Now, I am hoping to get to the same result for the many edit/input boxes.

In version 3.0, the quick_edit module checks (with Ajax) for names of existing wiki pages to edit. This avoids duplication. Great stuff. Wikipedia does something similar when you are searching for a page name.

I almost always have the search box on.

However, I also add "search page name" because the general search engine may not return the page I am looking for as the search result.

Here is an idea:

A new module which combines three modules:

See top right of http://moinmo.in/ for an example.

The action buttons are grayed out until text is entered in the text box. -> Very nice

Button should be WYSIWYCA

See top-right search box at:

__Alternatively, we could combine search page name and search text, and in the search results, we would first show pages names, and then, search text. This involves more work, but could be better for the end user UI.__

^I think the existing layout for the search top right in TW is fundamentally good. A text box, then a drop-down then a button. Why because the drop down is more future proof than any of the layouts from the other sites you reference.

If we make the contents of the drop down easy to customise or at the very least document how to add to it. For example the CRM function could add items to the drop down for "Contacts" and "Accounts", webmail could add "Mail Messages" and so on.

I do agree the wikipage create/edit module should be included in the top right search function.

I think this is an example of where considering the future openness of the solution would be very important - MatWho^

When I type something into the Create/Edit-Search-box there pops up an ajax-autocomplete-box below the search field.

This would be a great feature with relatively low effort, because the feature is already implemented for the Create/Edit-Search-box.

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
