Hi,
Go to this page: goo.gl/GIbLuy

Then search for the term IT... And see what you will get. How to fix this problem? We have IT Security as name of company but it's way down in the list (page 3) when you search.

What is the solution?

Thanks

Hey Nikolay,

IT is a very short word and the search we do is not for 1:1 matches, but for words that can start, end and contain the string. That's why you get Villa road Suite there . Suite has it in it. If you want to have 1:1 match for words, then you'll have to hack the code that does the search query.

Is this what you want to do? However then you'll most probably run in another issue - if you have the word "something-it" then the query won't match. as it is part of the word.

So what do you want to do?

Regards,
Daniel

Or search only for Security... The first thing is Cyber Securty which is very strange... The whole search plugin is a mess... If this can't be fix we will look for other solution which sucks because i need to redo the whole system now

I want to have 1:1 match because our partners search for themselves. I want when someone search for IT Security this to be on the first position not on 6

Hey Nikolay,
You'll have to hack the code in the following file:
components\com_hotspots\models\json.php

on line 426 you have this code till line 443:
you have this code:
$words = explode(' ', $sentence);
 
			foreach ($words as $word)
			{
				$searchWord = $q->Quote('%' . $q->escape($word, true) . '%', false);
				$search[] = $name . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $description . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $descriptionSmall . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $plz . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
 
				if (count($cats))
				{
					$search[] = $catName . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
				}
 
				$search[] = $street . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $country . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $town . ' LIKE ' . $searchWord;
			}
change it to this
$words = explode(' ', $sentence);
 
			foreach ($words as $word)
			{
				$searchWord = $q->Quote('[[:<:]]' . $q->escape($word, true) . '[[:>:]]', false);
				$search[] = $name . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $description . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $descriptionSmall . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $plz . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
 
				if (count($cats))
				{
					$search[] = $catName . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
				}
 
				$search[] = $street . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $country . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
				$search[] = $town . ' RLIKE ' . $searchWord;
			}
With this change you should be able to search for 1:1 match for words. Keep in mind that if you enter "Information technology" for search term, then you'll search for the full word "information" or "technology".

It would be really good if you do those changes in a hotspots plugin. We have a onAfterBuildQuery event that would give you the current query object. There you could strip the current where part of the query and do whatevery you want. This way even when you update hotspots your changes to the json.php file won't be overriden.

Regards,
Daniel

Hey Nikolay,

The default sorting is name asc, so what you see is correct. If you don't want to have IT Academy in the list at all when you do search for IT Security, then you have to change the first line
$words = explode(' ', $sentence);
to
$words = array($sentence);

This way "IT Security" won't be split in 2 words. You'll get way less results than now, but maybe it works better for your project.

Regards,
Daniel
