Re: Updating Error

Use the below code to create a new php file. Name it something like 'diagdb.php' and put in in the admin directory. Then run it from a browser. This should tell us how far the updating got before it puked. <?php $settings_dir = "../settings"; require "$settings_dir/database.php"; $result = $db->quer...

Re: Updating Error

Be happy to help you. Couple of questions first... What version of Sphider were you running? The original 1.3.6?? Which version did you download? The error indicates a duplicate key entry, which is probably a data error. Once I know what we are going from and what we are going to, I may have some id...

Indexing MP3 files

Sphider does not have the ability to index mp3 (or wav or ogg) files. At one time, way back, there was a mod for the original Sphider to index mp3's. Whatever happened to that mod is anyone's guess. Anyway, I started to play around with a test script, based on Sphider's image indexing, to see if aud...

The 2.2.0 Classic and PDO vervsions of Sphider have been released. Some rewriting of the Search form and displayed results took place. The Sphider administrator can now use the control panel to toggle between just a basic search or a tabbed search for basic, RSS, and image searches. No more renaming...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Thanks. Yes, SphiderPlus is still a charge. And I have an archive of EVERY build I have done. I wish I had a CMS like back in my SYSTEM V days! Any changes I have made, like RWD, stay... unless I find a good reason to back them out. Early on, I made a security improvement at someone's suggestion tha...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Making some progress... I think. First is the search page with tabbed search ON, advanced search ON, and categories ON. Screenshot_20181129-113107.png Then we disable tabbed search in the admin panel. Screenshot_20181129-113155.png The page with advanced search and categories also turn off. Screensh...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Thanks! I believe the container is at 95%. I'll scale it back to 90% and add margins. Nice thing now is all that can be done by only editing a single css file. Obviously I'm not experienced at developing for mobile, so thanks for the help. My IT roots are not only pre-mobile, they are pre-cellphone,...

Change the css to suit taste. Different button style. Change the css to suit taste. Same for font style, color,...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

It's a work in progress. I had forgotten the meta tag in the header.html, so I added that for the mobile template. Then tweaked two values in css. The current result (remember, still a work in progress) can be seen at https://worldspaceflight.com/sphider/search.php . Now WorldSpaceFlight has no need...

Worldspaceflight.com is on the bleeding edge of Sphider 2.2.0. You can compare the search page on deskto...
