View Full Version : Search link for this OR that?
February 1st, 2013, 01:09 PM
So I have a search link like this: http://blah.com/clip/showgallery.php?si=super+bowl and I'm trying to get it to also list in the search results items that contain "superbowl" as one word, but without excluding the ones that contain it as "super bowl" as well.
Is this possible? If I insert both words into the url, PP thinks I only want results that contain both superbowl and super bowl, and I'm trying to fix this.
Is this not possible without new coding, or can you give me how it should be entered into the url to give me both results together?
Thanks for any advice.

You can not that is the real answer because they are separate words.
when your searching for a phrase you are searching for a specific word in a title or description etc. Therefore your not matching partial words.
super bowl is two seperate words superbowl is one word.

Johnny also search has not been done using showgallery.php in like 6 years or more.
Therefore your way of trying to do things will never work.
You can try doing a search right here on our site for super bowl from the search script it works fine there are three results. One contains super one bowl and the third is superbowl.
