Re-index operation interrupted

While not a common issue, there are times when, for some reason or another, a host may drop a connection during an indexing operation. If this occurs during a normal (initial) index operation, Sphider records this and, upon re-connection, allows the indexing operation to resume. If the disconnect oc...

Sphider 4.0.0-MB and SphiderLite 2.0.0 released

The latest releases feature a revised way of doing backups and restores, relying solely on MySQL backup and restore utilities. This increases speed and, more importantly, reliability of these processes. Also, a limited ability to recover from interrupted re-indexing has been implemented. More detail...

Re: Missing lines in search ressults

Very happy that worked out for you. Upgrades are always encouraged as each new release is more liable to include minor improvements and bug fixes than new features. Upgrades are really quite easy. Download the newest version, extract it somewhere out of the way. Read the changelog. Note any files wh...

Re: Missing lines in search ressults

Okay. It may be the the full text of the affected pages did not properly get put in the database. This is due to an issue discovered with determining page character sets. This is corrected in 3.6.0, but there is an easy hack for 3.5.2. In admin/spider.php, line 484, find: $fulltxt = removeEmoji($ful...

This is what I get using the settings seen above. This is using SphiderLite 1.3.0.

If you use a different version and settings, let me know and I will check it.

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

A definitive fix has been found! It seems that under certain circumstances, the regex on line 856 of spiderfuncs.php entered a runaway state. The way to fix this has FINALLY been found. spiderfuncs.php, line 856 should read: if (preg_match("@<title.*?>(.*?)<\/title.*?>@si", $file, $regs)) ...

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

SPECIFICALLY FOR kraisor: I found a way to capture the titles! The regex normally used gets mangled somewhere. It is a valid script, but at some point it stops working. I HAVE FOUND A REGEX WHICH DOES WORK! This is specifically for apnews.com and will not work for others. Edit admin/spiderfuncs.php,...

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

TO OTHER USERS WHO MAY EXPERIENCE THE SAME PROBLEM OF TITLES BEING BLANK: Sphider looks for the title tags, and the script (as of 3.5.2 and Lite 1.2.2) is looking for the form <title> or <title >. If you happen to have any attributes in the tag, the title won't be found. This is an easy fix: Edit s...

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

Weird indeed! There is SOMETHING in the page that prevents Sphider from seeing the title tags. If I copy the source html into a local file and scan it with Sphider, the tags are not found. If I delete everything from the css down and save that fragment, title tags are found and read. I have been una...
