Search Results Joomla Search

Featured Lock Resolved Bug
Hi, I am asking this again since this forum is too difficult to find prior posts.

When are you going to make the search function the same as the native Joomla search results (not smart search) so text from the article is included?

I am wondering why this is taking so long. I did not upgrade to a developer license because it was not fixed yet. Can you tell me why or when this can be fixed to work?

If I am going to build websites with this the search function needs to show more than the title of the articles.

Thank you

Hello, from my quick test in with the new version the search is now worse than before. It cannot find much of anything outside of Joomla articles. The SPPB pages built with the article builder are missing completely now where they were just missing the content part.

I can search for words on the pages I built in SPPB using the Joomla article method and the search results are blank.

I really need this to work asap.

Thanks

This is a critical bug and I would appreciate this get a hotfix asap. The site I bought this extension for just launched and no words in the SPPB articles can be found in the Joomla search (not smart search). This is a massive issue for this site.

Can you fix this and give me a patch asap?

Thank you

Why is this so difficult to fix? It's been an issue since I first started a few months ago.

Dave Bishop

Can you tell me why this is not fixed yet? I have not written a review on the JED yet since this has been an issue for months now.

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay response. The smart search working fine previously. But, there was a major problem in duplicate search indexing and result. When we use the page builder into Joomla content area, then it index double item for native Joomla content smart search and Page Builder smart search. That's why we have to skip this process. We are thinking different way till now & at the moment we have made this solution.

Hello, I have been waiting 6 months for this fix and do NOT use smart search. Not sure why you keep telling me about smart search as I don't care if that works, I am not going to use it.

This is very disappointing to me as you assured me it would be fixed in a presale/trial period discussion.

How much longer do I have to wait, or should I write my review now with this issue?

Hi Dave Bishop,

You are not ignored, I have replied on you comment in blog post. From now I will follow this thread and I am not confirm yet but I hope within next two or three Page Builder release we will try to fix this issue and really sorry for long waiting.

Thanks,
Mamun

Hi, I am not a developer, so I am not sure what the issue is but isn't this less complicated than you are making it out to be? Isn't it just a search plugin for your component that looks in the database tables you store your article content in? How could this possibly take 6 months to figure out, and if it wasn't working before that I assumed it never worked.

So 2 or 3 releases from now is another 4-5 months. This is not acceptable to me.

Al Mamun - Staff

Hi Dave Bishop,

2 or 3 means not 4-5 months. You already know that our plans is 2 release of Page Builder every month so it will be 1 month or 1.5 month not higher than that, I can assure you about that time. It is not less complicated but bit complicated we have to deal with some Joomla core things. I know you waited long for this issue and I am really very sorry for that. Trust me and please be patient for at least 1 month I promise you will be happy.

Thanks,
Mamun

I am not using smart search, I really do not know how else to explain this to you. You seem dead set that this is what I am having issues with but it's NOT. It's the standard search component.

So why do you keep trying to fix smart search?

Al Mamun - Staff

Hi Dave,

We are trying fix it as you wanted. If you have time please let me know I will give you a copy to test hope it is what you exactly wanted.

I would like to try it, I just don't use smart search and you keep saying you fixed smart search. is this making sense?? You won't acknowledge that I am not talking about smart search. Do you understand?

Send me the test version.

This is getting to be absurd. The post says right in it Not Smart Search. So for 6 months now I've been waiting and now you finally just now realize what I am talking about?

I am extremely disappointed and am thinking it's time to write my review on the JED explaining this poor support over here.

How can you offer a Joomla article builder that does NOT work with the native Joomla search feature?? Very sad, very sad indeed.

Hi Dave,
Sorry for misunderstanding from those quote indicating smart search, You know I joined late in this topic so I thought it was smart search issue please be patient for 2 or 3 release(which I already told you). Also, I need to talk with developer that it is possible or not to show Page Builder content in Joomla native search because I don't know about it. In the mean time please be patient.

Thanks,
Mamun

I have never talked about smart search and you have been telling me for months you can fix this and I bought this based on that answer. Do you even read the stuff we write. Where is there any mention of smart search in any of the posts I made???? They all say NOT smart search. Again, did you read anything I said???

This is not some small issue, this is a full out FUBAR on your part. How can you offer a page builder that cannot be searched by the Joomla search component? It's an article for the love of god.

Not smart search, no mention of it and a screenshot of a NON smart search issue.
https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/search-issues

So now you are telling me it may or may not be possible? What the ### is that supposed to mean? I will give you a week to fix this or I start writing reviews anywhere I can find someplace to tell people the kind of stuff you do over there. So maybe just stop and fix this so we can move on. Remember I specifically required this in a presale question and during the trial period and you ASSURED me it was going to be fixed. Now you tell me you had no f'ing clue what I was talking about? This is a load of crap.

Hi Dave,

Please be patient, did I told you that you told about smart search? That is really big misunderstanding by us(support guy) not you. I am asking apology from you for that I personally always try to get very much understanding of user question but this is my first time that I skipped something on thread or not understood properly. You can ask "Pavel" for that. Again I am very sorry for that please be patient.

Thanks,
Mamun

Well either way, this still ridiculous. Every good extension I use that has content of any kind has a search and smart search plugin. It's probably a simple very well-known thing to create this. For you to not have this is very concerning along with the fact it took 3 months to get you to understand the issue.

When I say all extensions, I have not seen one that does not work with search until yours. I expect this fixed in the next update. How can you have a content creation extension that cannot be searched? It's not even possible you overlooked this if you are a good development company.

Hi Dave,

Tomorrow will come next update so I can't assure that your fix will come tomorrow. Please be patient I hope it will be fixed another update. This issue should get priority like others but for some misunderstanding this stacked. But I promise with you never will be like this.

Thanks,
Mamun

I have been very patient and need a fix in a week or less. You can give me a custom fix or beta if you can't get the search plugin working by tomorrow. This is more than fair considering the circumstances. Oct 2018 you assured me it would be fixed asap, that's a long time ago. I bought this for a production site and now the search does not work and it's causing issues on my clients site. This is not acceptable.

I'll look forward to a fix very very soon.

Thank you for getting this sorted out. I am not usually this blunt, but I was running out of options with your responses.

Hi Giles T,

Yes we fixed smart search issue, Please follow the instruction below to work with smart search:

# How to work with smart search?

1) At first you need to enable the smart search plugins from joomla plugins directory. http://prntscr.com/m5cfo7
2) Then you need to create an article using pagebuilder http://prntscr.com/m5cgpd
3) If you want to show your pagebuilder contents in smart search then you need to add some search keywords in joomla editor http://prntscr.com/m5cj35
4) Please don’t forget to select sp pagebuilder before saving.
5) Then the final step. You need to index your contents. To do so please go to component > smart search > then click on the index tab
i) http://prntscr.com/m5ck29
ii) http://prntscr.com/m5clm4
6) And finally you get your smart search working http://prntscr.com/m5cn5c
