Default 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; }

bit.

Code:
// 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

Default 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?

Regards

Raj

Default 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.

Default Normality Resumed



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

Thanks for your help.
