Search Issue

Search Issue

Hi

I have made the profile pages work, however I have a small but also new issue.

I have made a public gallery. I put a link in my menu bar to the results page.

The results page shows all the images, and has a search.

When a user searches the results page returns with the required results.


However when the user clicks on the public image gallery option in the menu bar, trying to see all the results again, the page just returns with the same search results that the user searched for.

How do I make the results show everything unless a search has been conducted

for pagination to work on the results page, the search is stored in a session,

Send me a copy of the results page so I can see the name of the session that is being created and can show you how to create a link that will clear the search.

Ok thanks

But I have 3 results pages. One for video, photos and articles.

So I need three fixes

in each results page there will be a section of code similar to:

if (1 == 1) {
$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_articlestable_Results"]=$WADbSearch1->whereClause;
}


this is storing the search in the session named WADbSearch1_articlestable_Results


each result page may use a diferant session name, so check the code.


then create a link:

php:
<a href="articlestable_Results.php?search=clear">Reset Search</a>




and add an if statement at line 1 of the page to clear the search session if the querystring is present:

php:
<?php

if(isset($_GET['search']) || $_GET['search'] == 'clear') {
    unset(
$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_articlestable_Results"]); 
}
?>

Ok well I have tryed it but I have some issues.

I would like instead of a reset link to just add the code to the end of the link in my css menu writer menu link

/PublicPhotoPages/imagetable_Results.php?search=clear

this works fine,

However when I add the code

<?php
if(isset($_GET['search']) || $_GET['search'] == 'clear') {
unset($_SESSION["WADbSearch1_articlestable_Results"]);
}
?>

to the results page my css menu writer menu is destroyed

Is this because I am using a template

Not sure what to do

sorry, this line:
if(isset($_GET['search']) || $_GET['search'] == 'clear') {

should be:
if(isset($_GET['search']) && $_GET['search'] == 'clear') {

Ok

Well It does work, which is good. But It seems to need something.

After a search users click on the menu nav bar link which links to the same page in order to see un filltered results.

However, every time users need to click on the menu two times for the results to return normally

Why is this happening
