[Resolved] nextgen search engine search by tags only

  • roberthq


    I just got the new nextgen search engine v0.6.0 working and thanks to Alex Rabe, it actually works. Thank you Alex.

    I use nextgen gallery with a shopping cart plug-in, wp-estore, and I have duplicated products spanning into many categories. So when someone does a search with this new tool, it brings up many duplicates. I figure there must be a way to have it only search tags, that way I can add tags to only once instance and get no duplicates. I’m not a php pro, but know code. I’ve been searching both the “search.php” and “nggSearch.php” and have yet to find a way or a place to make this change. Does anyone know?

    Thanks for Reading

    I found the answer though the help of Janet Taylor, her response below. Look in the nggSearch.php file for the following…

    $this->search_result = array_merge( (array) $nggdb->search_for_images( $wp->query_vars['s'] ), (array) nggTags::find_images_for_tags( $wp->query_vars['s'] , ‘ASC’ ));
    (array) $nggdb->search_for_images( $wp->query_vars['s'] ),
    so that the final line reads:
    $this->search_result = array_merge( (array) nggTags::find_images_for_tags( $wp->query_vars['s'] , ‘ASC’ ));

    best of luck, I hope it helps.

    Can someone please tell me where you get this NextGen Search Engine? I’ve seen quite a few posts about it, but can’t find any reference to it either by searching WordPress.org or Google. It sounds like just what I’m looking for. Where is it????

    I looked at that one, but it sounds like it just lets you search your galleries in the admin screen to find a particular gallery – I’m wanting something that will search on the image tags and display the images that have a particular tag.

    Oh, I think I just found it:
    Had to google on “nggsearch.php” to find it – for some reason Alex seems to have a whole lot of stuff on his site that I never find by going straight to the site, I always just stumble across stuff by googling.

    I got it to work too —

    everything but the pagination.

    Does anyone have the pagination working for results that are over the “number of images per page”?
