Hi

I have a small fix for you. Currently with the following lines of code brakes the search from searching the description.


if (!empty($params['sPattern'])) {
	
	
$pattern trim($params['sPattern']);
	
	
Search::newInstance()->addConditions("s_title LIKE '%"$pattern "%'");
	

	
}


The solution is to remove the above lines. The line numbers are 108 to 111.

Would it be as effective to use this instead of car attributes?
Could we have the vehicle makes and models still?

Thanks

Hi

The lines are in the index.php file of the plugin.

I believe this plugin is better but .......
a) I'm biased
b) this is beta
c) I've never used cars attributes so it may have some feature I'm not aware of.

Try both and let us know which meets your needs better and why.   ;)

Thinking about it cars attributes probably does something like

Car>Honda>CRV>4 cyl>4 door>

with sub attributes.

Is the duplicate a sponsored ad?  That's the only issue I've had.

I'll notify Sydcode an alternate way and see if we can drag him here.   :P  The testing I've done is very limited as I have no end users so any ads are one's I've made up.

P.S.  Did you make any changes?  I haven't made any including what Trains fixed yet.

I very much like this plugin, but i dont think its possible to have drop down selections for vehicle makes and models like in car attributes, for example if i select nissan, then all the nissan models will appear, if i change to jaguar, then the model selections change to jagaurs, i havent played with it much so not 100% sure.

Maybe i can install the cars attributes and just use that for makes and models, but im struggling to delete all the other parts to this like airbags, fuel type etc without any problems, if i can do this then i can then use this plugin for any other fields i choose, maybe the can be combined?

@admymotor,

Currently the custom attributes plugin does not support sub selects yet. It is possible just has not been implemented.

Sorry guys, I've been away.

Yes, I should've added descriptions to that line. Here's the fix.

Code: [Select]
Search::newInstance()->addConditions("(s_title LIKE '%". $pattern . "%' OR s_description LIKE '%". $pattern . "%')");
Just a reminder, that code forces "Like" results instead of the usual keyword results. I'll put in an option to allow you to choose which one to use.
