Re: can't indexing a lot of sites

Sphider 3.1.1-MB eliminates the need for the troublesome removeAccents() function. Rather than trying to force the word to conform to an all too English "a to z" alphabet check, the word is now compared to a unicode alphabetical check. The function had outlived its original purpose, which was for si...

Re: can't indexing a lot of sites

Looking at it... Which version of Sphider are you using? UPDATE: If you are using Sphider 3.1.0, try this: In commonfuncs.php, replace lines 404-423 $table = array( 'Š'=>'S', 'š'=>'s', 'Ð'=>'Dj', 'đ'=>'dj', 'Ž'=>'Z', 'ž'=>'z', 'Ć'=>'C', 'ć'=>'c', 'Č'=>'C', 'č'=>'c', 'À'=>'A', 'Á'=>'A', 'Â'=>'A', 'Ã'...

Sphider 3.1.0-MB and Sphider 2.4.2-PDO released

Sphider 3.1.0-MB is multibyte capable, like 3.0.0-MB. However, 3.1.0-MB does NOT require the PHP mbstring extension. Mbstring is recommended, but not required. If it is available, it will be used. If not, Sphider will emulate the mulitbyte character string functions. Also, 3.1.0-MB continues the imp...

Re: Can't INDEX my website - Sphider 1.4.2

Your latest issue is an easy fix. Edit the file spiderfuncs.php. On line 736, change break 2; to: break; !.4.2 was one of the earlier attempts at upgrading Sphider and obviously didn't catch everything. Also note that 1.4.2 does not index images. That didn't happen until version 2. As to your origin...

Character corruption

Sphider operates using the UTF-8 character set. When a web page is loaded for indexing, Sphider checks the HTTP headers to determine the character set in use. If it is not UTF-8, the data is converted to UTF-8. In its zeal to ensure everything is UTF-8, Sphider then performs a SECOND check. This is ...

Sphiders 2.4.1, 2.4.1-PDO, and 3.0.0-MB have been released

Sphider 2.4.1, legacy and PDO is a minor update to 2.4.0. The "major" work went into updated some SQL error messages in the unlikely event any SQL statement fails to prepare properly. There was a correction to some code that prevented indexing from a browser for some sites. Also an addition to ensur...

Re: Sphider 2.4.0 not indexing

This issue has been resolved! In Sphider 2.4.0, lines 86-89: } elseif (isset($_SERVER['argv']) && $_SERVER['argc'] < 2) { commandLineHelp(); die(); } we commented out the elseif, thus: } /*elseif (isset($_SERVER['argv']) && $_SERVER['argc'] < 2) { commandLineHelp(); die(); }*/ It seems that ON SOME ...

POSSIBLE indexing issue with Sphider 2.4.0

Spider 2.4.0 MIGHT have this issue for SOME users. There is a POSSIBILITY that Sphider 2.4.0 may refuse to index a site from a browser window. If instead of seeing indexing results you get something like: 240results.JPG then the problem is likely in spider.php, lines 86-89. Change this: } elseif (is...

Re: Sphider 2.4.0 not indexing

Looking at your settings, I can't see ANYTHING out of the ordinary. Now it's time to get serious! Imagick - This is used to display previews in search results. It is also used during indexing to try to determine image size if sizse tags are missing. Sphider can still index without it and can still s...
