Search Modification
Just a simple work around for when a customer searches for say laptops and you have loads of product defined as laptop computer. In this instance nothing would show in the results.

This strips the s of the end for the search:

Add into customer/search.php below the:

# Perform SQL search query

if(!$substring) { $substring = $substring_sku; }



        // code to strip last s from search string
        $substring = trim($substring);
        $start = (strlen($substring)-1);
        if ((substr($substring,$start,1)=="s")||(substr($substring,$start,1)=="S")){
        $substring = substr($substring,0,$start);

the searches for laptops will show up anything that is a laptop

Obviously it doesn't only work for laptops :wink:

I'm seeing squares in .php files

I tried your suggested idea of getting rid of 's' at end of search words,
but when I tried to edit the /customer/search.php file, I found strange
rectangle symbols all over the place. It just looks a mess.

Do you need a special editor?

what were you editting it in?

Seeing squares
I'm using the standard editor that comes with WS_FTP.

It seems to run notepad.exe.

Is there a better editor available?

Try opening it up in Notepad or Dreamweaver or ultraedit and it should be fine.

Normality Resumed

I was doing a binary transfer of the PHP files and hence the squares & strange symbols.

Thanks for your help.
