View Full Version : Search Function Within Categories
December 29th, 2007, 09:04 AM
Has the search function changed? I thought that I used to be able to search within a category if I was in the category when I started the search.
But recently it seems that regardless of where I am when I start a search I get results from the entire collection.
My version is 5.62

The search function has changed with 5.6 I beleive yes and has not been apart of showgallery for some time.

If I select the "Search" button at the top of a the gallery - the one that appears next to "admin" when I am logged in - if I select a category to search within, this does not appear to make a difference. It seaches all of the categories.
I seems to me to be not working right.
Any advice? Did I switch off its function?

You can only search per category on the main search page.

I think that I understand you, but my site is not behaving correctly.
I go to
Select "Search" on the line that says "home search log-in"
I then enter the term "palmer" and select "search title only"
The I select the category "Gedney Cemetery" which is a cemetery that has no palmers.
I get 51 hits that are photos from all over the site.
The system did not use to behave this way so I figure I changed something by mistake.

what version are you running?
I think you might need to upgrade to 6.01 to correct any previous bugs in the script if there where some. I think that is the correct thing you want to do.
I did a search on our gallery with a search term and selected one cat and results from that cat are displayed.
