[Resolved] No search results being found since update ?

    @abcdiamond

    Plugin Name: WP Custom Search
    Version: 0.3.18
    WordPress 3.5.1.

    This plugin has recently stopped working, and now produces NO results when people search.

    Search result alwasy shows this message:

    Search Result for — 0 pages

    No posts found. Try a different search?

    These are my settings for the two drop down options in the search box at the top right column of http://www.brisbanebayside.com/

    LABEL 1

    DATA TYPE = tag
    WIDGET
    Drop Down = Equals
    Drop Down Options = ‘my list of tags

    LABEL 2
    DATA TYPE = Category
    WIDGET
    Drop Down = Equals
    Drop Down Options = ‘left blank

    This was working OK before, but not sure when it broke.

    Any ideas for me to fix?

    If I leave both “Drop Down Options” as blank, in the ‘Widget Config’ section, then it DOES work, and brings up the first 10 results.

    However, I NEED to populate the the lists manually, as I did before.

    I would also like to know how to change the limit of 10 results to unlimited, or at least a higher figure.

    Hi @abcdiamond,

    Ah yes, there was a change in the new release as to how tags/categories are handled. There were problems in some cases with international character sets being used in urls so I switched to using the IDs rather than the names. I hadn’t thought through how this would affect people who had manually entered lists of names.

    I’ll have a think about a more permanent fix on Monday, but for now you could get the search working again either by entering the ids with each of the categories in the dropdown options list:

    e.g. 1:My Category,2:Other Category

    Or by replacing this line in extra_search_fields.php:

    return " AND ( ".$comparison->addSQLWhere($this->getField($name,$index),$value).")";

    with

    return " AND ( (".$comparison->addSQLWhere($this->getField($name,$index),$value).") OR ( ".$comparison->addSQLWhere("meta$index.name",$value).") )";

    , although this will mean that the dropdowns won’t be pre-populated in the search forms.

    This is line 751 in the copy I’m using for testing, it might be slightly different on the currently released version.

    … same here.

    also I am having the same effect with no categories being used, but also with plain free search field.
    … + actually I would rather prefer the fix, as manual insertion is as painful as is missing dropdowns.

    [– also would like to add to other comments here, that this is really unique/non-replacable plugin. so whatever makes this sustainable, I would second ;-)]

    thanks, though, for looking into this!

    Thanks for the temp fix.
    I added the tag ids to the category names.
    11:Birkdale,17:Capalaba,26:Cleveland
    and this is now working.
    I used “words in” for the compare option, but I worry if I have a tag number 11 and 111. What would happen ?

    A permanent fix will be good though 🙂
    Thanks

    @abcdiamond if you’re searching for categories which exist you should be able to use the equals comparison. Otherwise yes searching for category 11 would give you category 111.

    @leroy-b this sounds like a different issue, could you describe your setup please?

    hello Don,

    thanks for asking specifically 🙂
    … actually, the story seems an “easy” one, after following a hunch: when I turn off relevanssi-plugin everything works…

    … it would be a *very* hard treat, though, as relevanssi is an unparalleled plugin to pimp the WP-search, which – as I don´t have to tell you, in particular – is very poor by nature…

    – would you have any recommendations, how I could solve this…?

    thanks again! + best!

    ps: forgot to mention: it worked before in this combination. seems to me upgrading wordpress was where it stopped (but I am not 100% sure on this).

    I am having a similar issue.

    I have a drop down setup in the search pulling custom field info from posts and when I select one of the options and search, there’s no results showing even though I know that posts do have those custom fields filled in (the drop down’s auto-populating with the options to choose from).

    I’m running WordPress 3.5.1

    The update that you loaded to WordPress, which I did yesterday, fixed everything. Thanks.

    Not resolved for me yet.
    Here’s exactly what happens:
    I’m using presets and short-codes to put the preset into my search page:
    http://www.disciplesnet.org/worship-index/
    The presets allow searching for preacher, theme, etc. (scroll down to find them)
    The drop-down list pre-populates just as it should, but, when I select any preacher (for instance), I get empty search results.
    However, if I click on the magnifying glass icon next to the already filled in search box, I get exactly the results I should.

    @madebyguerrilla and @qoheleth could you upgrade to 0.3.20 and let me know if that helps. Thanks

    @leroy-b, I’ll investigate compatibility with relevanssi when I get time, this may not be till the next major release though (which will be quite an overhaul)

    @don,
    No luck with 0.3.20 still. WP is version 3.5.2 (latest).
    The weird thing for me is that if I use the already filled in search (in the search box after using any of my presets), it does work. Somehow that search isn’t running.

    @leroy-b, I’ll investigate compatibility with relevanssi when I get time, this may not be till the next major release though (which will be quite an overhaul)

    great! thanks! looking forward to this, as the recent update doesn´t change the situation. … and I wouldn´t like to let go any of these two great plugins! 🙂

    It seems to be working for me now. Thanks 🙂

    @leroy-b, I’ve just put out a new release which may fix the issue
