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...

Re: Problem of HTML entities and quotes in search result

The problem of the "&" in the title disappearing and leaving "nbsp;" is resolved in Sphider 2.4. Also in the titles, the missing apostrophes are restored. Second issue is the truncation occurring in the description. This occurs when the apostrophe (&apos:) character is en...

Re: Problem of HTML entities and quotes in search result

Probably a filter somewhere. I'll take a look. -------------------------------------------- UPDATE 4/6: There seems to be a twofold issue. Using Sphider v2.3, none of the full text of pages from http://www.equiterre.fr is being stored. This is probably related to the truncation issue. Trying a diffe...

Cause spidering to pause after indexing a specified number of pages

If you wish to cause spidering to pause for a short time after indexing a certain number of pages, an easy edit can make this possible. Let's say that after indexing 30 pages, you want Sphider to take a five minute break, then resume for another 30 pages. Open spider.php. Find "function indexUr...

"Show only the 2 most relevant links from each site" broken in 2.3.1

Another of the deprecated each() function replacements has come back to haunt Sphider 2.3.1. This has been corrected for the next release, but for those you can't wait, the fix is easy. Open the include/searchfuncs.php file and look for this code: $k = $domains_to_show[$domains[$key]][0]; $v = $doma...

Re: .com search at Sphider 1.42

Your code for limiting the number of links Sphider fetch from each domain works just fine! That's good. It has occurred to me that you may want to keep an eye on the 'temp' and 'pending' tables. Since indexing may stop before ALL the links are processed, these tables may contain "leftovers&quo...
