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...

Re: Sphider 2.4.0 not indexing

Initially, using Sphider 2.4.1 (which is yet unreleased but MUCH like 2.4.0), I tried to index http://www.grangewoodplastics.co.uk. It immediatedly failed, giving me a NOHOST error. After installing Sphider 2.2.0 and creating a database for that, I was able to successfully index the site. I upgraded...

Re: Problem of HTML entities and quotes in search result

Now that Sphider 2.4.0 is released, I've gone back to your site. I've found the the function removeEmoji(0 in and of itself was not the problem, but its placement. So, in future releases this: $host = $data['host']; $path = $data['path']; $fulltxt = $data['fulltext']; $fulltxt = removeEmoji($fulltxt...
