View Full Version : search troubles
March 21st, 2007, 12:33 PM
I made the upgrade to v2.1. The search page shows up but when I click on the search button. It takes me to the forums home page because I have the 301 redirect setup.
Any ideas how to get the search function working again?
Thanks for your time!

I think what is happening the search button is ponting to search/ when it should be pointing to search.php.
But where do i fix this?

You need to upload search.php n your gallery directory

I would say that search.php in the template is the same for /forums/ and /gallery/.
I had thoughts of redoing all the internal template links to gallery files with full URL's .
Currently in templates:
<a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]catid=$catid">Search Catagory</a>
Idea of change:
<a href="$vba_options[gallery_url]/search.php?$session[sessionurl]catid=$catid">Search Catagory</a>
This would give full URL's on any links to gallery php files.
- redirects, rewrites - would have less problems

With some help I found that vbseo had a url rewrite on this, i removed the rewrite and all is good
'^search\.php$' => 'search/'
