search results

Hey Ray,

On the search results page, such as http://clients.motley.site/friths2/shopsearch.php?shopSearchInput=test&WADbSearch1=Search+Shop, how would I get the search term(s) added to the page here http://prntscr.com/8jm36d ? (and also add to the failed search message)

Also, if the visitor does a blank search how do you stop all products being returned?

Lastly, you mentioned in email a couple of weeks ago when you had your power cut that you would give me a bit of a steer on the search function. At the moment its seems that you can only search by words in sequence (eg 'monthly' or 'monthly disposable'). How would go about making it so that if you did a search for 'johnson
monthly' it would return any combination that has both johnson and monthly in it? You asked if I was usingthe search object and I repliedm that I wasnt sure...

Have attached the file here

Many thanks

Jamie

You can save the search terms in the session on top of the page:

php:
<?php

@session_start();
if (isset(
$_GET['shopSearchInput'])) {
  
$_SESSION["shopSearchInput"] = $_GET['shopSearchInput'];
}
?>



Then display it where you want to from the session.

I think you can get it to use AND for any space by defining space as the and on line 16 like:
$searchProducts_1->setSearch(array("type"=>"k","comparison"=>"like", "and"=>" ") ...

I think the easiest way to get it to not return results with a blank search would be to add a search param that returned no results below the current search like:

php:
<?php

if ((isset($_GET["shopSearchInput"])) && ($_GET["shopSearchInput"] === "")) {
  
$searchProducts_1->clearSearch();
  
$searchProducts_1->setSearch(array("type"=>"v","comparison"=>"="), array("ProductSKU"), "s""0");

}
?>



That should only return rows with the SKU is = 0, which I assume would be no results.

I had the wrong GET variable in the IF statement. Try with the updated code. (I've updated my previous post)

I got it working. I had the default no results search searching for "0" which it treated as an empty search. That should be working now.

great thanks. do I need to download any other file other than the shopsearch.php one?

Also, on a blank search the content shown is http://prntscr.com/8k8s1u which is the same content of a 'failed' search but on a failed search it highlights the searched words - I would I modify the blank search to use a different text?

You could... just use the same IF statement for the secondary search to show a secondary message.
