Re: Updating Error

When you do go more mobile friendly, Sphider is already a good way there with the mobile template css. The mobile template is basically the standard with different css. From the looks of it, you are already basing your results page on either the standard and/or mobile template as it is. Sphider 2.2 ...

Re: Search language

After my middle of the night "flash of brilliance" and resulting tests this morning, I am inclined to agree that a ? modifier to the url is the better way to go. In fact, that is EXACTLY what I did with the MOD I posted. That mod could be adapted to any Sphider version I know of going back to the An...

Re: Updating Error

The idea I dreamed up last night works! You can see the details in the Sphider MOD board on this forum. W-A-Y cleaner solution than my first attempt. No need to copy files or create new directories. Search.php works just like it did originally, except that by adding ?sl= [language] you can get a sea...

Designate Search language on the fly

If you want to present the search page in a language other than the language setup from the administration paqnel, this simple modification will do the trick. Edit search.php. Very near the top, change error_reporting(0); $include_dir = "./include"; to error_reporting(0); session_start(); $include_d...

Re: Updating Error

I dreamed up another solution last night which I will test today. It is for a very simple MOD and will not require any separate directories or copied files. Essentially, it will involve adding a command-line variable to override any language setting.

I'll post later, presuming the idea works.

Search language

As you all know, when administering Sphider you have a variety of languages which can be used on the search pages. In the course of helping with another issue, the topic of language did arise and there is an instance when was being provided in several different languages. What seemed an obvious solu...

Re: Updating Error

Okay... that was trial and error, but I have it working. Not quite as simple, but still better than duplicating EVERYTHING. Lines 61-67... ALMOST my way... This works: $include_dir = "./include"; $template_dir = "./templates"; $common_template_dir = "./common_template"; $tmp_dir ="../sphider/tmp"; $...

Re: Updating Error

To set the version number to reflect what you REALLY have, run this from the admin folder:
$settings_dir = "../settings";
require "$settings_dir/database.php";

$db->query(
"UPDATE `".$mysql_table_prefix
."settings` SET version_nr='2.2.0-PDO' WHERE id = 1"
);
