View Full Version : - and _ no longer stay in keywords

If you put
In the keywords text field, it translates it to
You can view an example of this here (http://www.gottapixel.net/gallery/member-galleries/p286670-happy-easter.html).
This did work before in 7. We use gallery keywords heavily in our store to link products with sample layouts. The keywords identical to our SKU numbers in the store.

You might have modified things because I beleive there are certain characters we have always parsed out of titles or keywords etc.

Please see this site (http://scraporchard.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=135586&title=stpatrick-27s-blessing-card&cat=679). the _ is not stripped out of the keywords
wm2_LuMe Lucky, St. Patrick's Day, Irish, Leprechaun, Shamrock, Irish Blessing
I know that they use the same system in their store as we do and they stay up on upgrading their software but it does appear they are using 7 Photopost. So at some point, Photopost did not strip this information.

Your talking about a very old Photopost code way before SEO urls and such.
I do not see anything that has changed differently than how we have handled them the past many years with version 7 and now 8.
They are probally using version 6 I would think. They definately are not on 7.0 series not with a copyright that is 5 years old.

I just checked and show we are running version 7.1.

Anyone can feel free to alter there coding as they wish. Michael has coded keywords to not allow that hyphen.
Keywords have always been suggested to be added with commas like
The way the application is coded only a letter or number can be used in a title or keyword

Well, since we have now established that Photopost did do this in 7.0, I am putting in a request to Michael to put the functionality back.
I don't understand why Photopost keeps removing functionality instead of focusing on putting in new functionality... but I guess that is what makes this software unique!

Actually it would be adding functionality it is security on keywords. I will pass along your thoughts.
The point is software evolves drops stuff adds more stuff that is the nature of the game.
Keywords can only contain actual letters and numbers.

You can try altering your showphoto.php script which is a code mode and remove the eregi_replace function on the $si variable I guess.

Yep you will see the difference
$si = trim(ereg_replace("[^a-z0-9]", "", strtolower($si)));
in 7 series I think it was simply
$si = un_htmlspecialchars($si);
