No summary and cant reindex

I have been testing phpdig 1.8.4 but cant seem to get a sensible result. I get either end of a paragraph as summary or no summary. My config looks like this
Code:
define('SUMMARY_DISPLAY_LENGTH',250);            //Max chars displayed in summary
define('SNIPPET_DISPLAY_LENGTH',250);            //Max chars displayed in each snippet

define('DISPLAY_SNIPPETS',true);                 //Display text snippets
define('DISPLAY_SNIPPETS_NUM',4);                //Max snippets to display
define('DISPLAY_SUMMARY',true);                 //Display description
I also get cant reindex thru the web admin all the time (grrr).

I was using version 1.6 but have attempted an upgrade as phpinclude exclude seemed a bit intermittent.

Whats thie difference betwwen a summary and a snippet?


Sorry for so many q's....in one post.

Grateful for any pointers

  • The difference between DISPLAY_SUMMARY and DISPLAY_SNIPPETS:
    PHP Code:
    // code in search_function.php
    if (DISPLAY_SUMMARY) {
        
    $table_results[$n]['text'] = phpdigHighlight($reg_strings,ereg_replace('(@@@.*)','',wordwrap($textSUMMARY_DISPLAY_LENGTH'@@@')));
    }
    if (
    DISPLAY_SUMMARY && DISPLAY_SNIPPETS) {
        
    $table_results[$n]['text'] .= "\n<br/><br/>\n";
    }
    if (
    DISPLAY_SNIPPETS) {
        if (
    $extract) {
            
    $table_results[$n]['text'] .= $extract;
        }
        else if (!
    $table_results[$n]['text']){
            
    $table_results[$n]['text'] = phpdigHighlight($reg_strings,ereg_replace('(@@@.*)','',wordwrap($textSUMMARY_DISPLAY_LENGTH'@@@')));
        }

Thanks for the links but after 6 hours setup/config testing i had already read them twice. I still can't get a phpdigExclude to work, its on its own new line. And reindexing via web admin simply refuses every time with 'Document already exists' feedback. I have searched here and read but dont see a potential solution/answer except for cron jobbing. But i can't be bothered to do this (lazy managed hosting takes ages to do my bidding) without some certainty of reward - i got a site to run and need to redevelopment tempates with phpdiginclude and exclude tags....

I think i should probably turn on debugging and test again. Weird thing is some templates work with the phpdigincludes and some do not. Any they are identical!

Any other pointers welcome.

Eureka -phpdigexcludes working now

I finally fathomed the problem - it was a small dreamweaver version difference which meant that the html and template files had suddenly got themselves mangled and were not updating properly. As a result some hand editing sorted the problem and reindexing via web admin seemed to work too.

Hoorah!
