Re: rah_file_search

Is there a way to change this to search for links?

Re: rah_file_search

Before I go tinkering, I was curious if there’s a way to use <txp:if_search> and <txp:if_search_results> with this plugin? All I’m looking for at this point is a way to display a custom message if there are no results.

Thanks!

Re: rah_file_search

I have tried all your examples with rah_file_search and rah_link_search, like

<txp:search_input />
<txp:rah_file_search />

but search results always return articles, not files or links, using TxP 4.3 and 4.2. What am I missing?

The tag doesn’t return article results. Can you post a tag trace from the problem page in question?

I have stripped down the query page. The tag trace looks like this and still returns articles:

The tag trace you posted isn’t from a search page. The tag will only return something when there is active search (?q URL parameter is set).

Also, the tag seems to be placed inside an article. You probably don’t want that, because now the tag is called on every article, outputting repeated results. It should be placed to the page template (or to a form that is then called on the page template).

Re: rah_file_search

I don’t get it. This page template

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="de" lang="de">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<txp:css n="test" />" type="text/css" media="screen" />
</head>

<body id="default">

<txp:search_input />
<txp:rah_file_search />

<txp:article form="waw_archive" />

</body>
</html> 


results in a /?q page when searched, but it contains articles, not files.

Please, post the full tag trace from that page. Anyway, it indeed will return articles (too) as you have an article tag on the page template. If you are wondering if the plugin even works, yes it works perfectly fine.

What you should see in your tag trace when the plugin is used correctly is similar to this:

<txp:rah_file_search />
	[SQL (0.000214099884033): select id from txp_file where (filename rlike '2' or description rlike '2') and status = '4']
	[SQL (0.000206232070923): select * from txp_file where id = 1]
	[SQL (0.0001220703125): select Form from txp_form where name='files']

That’s when searched for “2” (?q=2).

Re: rah_file_search

Ok, I now have a fresh textpattern installation and created this test page:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="de" lang="de">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<txp:css n="test" />" type="text/css" media="screen" />
</head>

<body id="default">

<txp:search_input />
<txp:rah_file_search />

</body>
</html> 

When I enter “Welcome” into the search box it returns the “Welcome to your site” article, but not the “Welcome” file that I uploaded. This file has “Welcome” in its filename, in its title, and in its description, but is not returned. The full tag trace of the search result is here and the output from the search page is here.
