Adaptive Quick Search

Post by Extensions Robot » Sat May 24, 2008 8:34 am

Modification name: Adaptive Quick Search
Author: Forke
Modification description: This is a flexible Quick Search, that adapts its function to where the user is searching. So, in the index page, the MOD searches all forums; in a forum, the MOD searches that forum; in a topic, the MOD searches that topic; and in results, the MOD searches within results.

In other words, it merges all the different quick searches in the prosilver template into a single one. The MOD also includes instructions for subsilver2.
Modification version: 1.0.2
Tested on phpBB version: 3.0.1

Adaptive Quick Search

Post by Forke » Sat May 24, 2008 8:34 am

Great news! My first validated mod :lol:

I hope you enjoy it. This MOD requires only one modification of files!

Just to clarify things: this mod replaces the quick search in the overall_header of prosilver to a more flexible quick search, that adapts its function to where the user is searching. If you are viewing the index page and you use the quick search, you'll find posts that are located in all forums; in a forum, the MOD searches that forum; in a topic, the MOD searches that topic; and in results, the MOD searches within results.

In subsilver2, I recommend putting it in the breadcrumbs replacing the timezone information, but you can keep it if you want, of course, and put the quick search box wherever you like.

As for non default templates, I guess the instructions for prosilver will fit. If not, I can take a look and help you.

Some other things:

—————————————————————

Update from 0.0.1/0.0.2:

in index.php, find and remove:

Code: Select all

'S_INDEX'            => true,
Also, you should replace the entire quick search with the new 1.0.2 code, since its optimized.

—————————————————————

If you see a border around the quick search box, try removing <fieldset> and </fieldset> from the MOD code. Or you could search for the fieldset class in the CSS and add border-width: 0;

Exactly what was missing in subSilver2.
Maybe an even better place for the search box would be below the Breadcrumbs box, obverse of the "new topic"/"reply" buttons...

I originally developed it for subsilver2, since my forum uses that template by default. I extended it to prosilver, because I think its a better quick search than the normal one.

I only recommend to put it in the breadcrumbs because... well, because i like i there :P. But of course! You can put the quick search code wherever you like it in the overall_header.

Glad you like it!

Tucson, glad you like it! :)

If anyone is wondering how to modify the way the quick search looks, its relatively easy. You just have to add the search-box ID to your stylesheet file.

can this mod be used out side of the header, and put next to the "post reply" button, similar to this forum, if so where should the code go

would this require spliting each if statement up and applying them to each page, for example:

"<!-- IF S_VIEWFORUM..." would go on "viewforum_body.html"
"<!-- IF S_VIEWTOPIC.." would go on "viewtopic_body.html"

thanks tribe

Where do I find the <input value="{xxxx}"> values to edit it so it I can have it say "Quick Search..." instead of "Search..." in the search box?

Thanks.

Thanks.
In the language folder of your phpbb, in the common.php file, you have to edit these values:

'SEARCH_MINI' for the index quick search.
'SEARCH_FORUM' for the forum quick search.
'SEARCH_TOPIC' for the topic quick search.

in the search.php file, you have to edit this value:

'SEARCH_IN_RESULTS' for the results quick search.

Hope you like the mod!

If you have any more doubts, i'd be happy to help you.
