Search results not working when accents used

Post by ralvis » Sun Jul 22, 2007 7:17 pm

Hi -

I'm using Joomfish 1.7 and Joomla 1.0.12 with English as main language and translations in French.

Almost everything is working correctly except for 2 problems when searching.

1. Search results not working in French when using words containing accents.
2. All search results in French include the section and category names in English (please see image)

If someone could shed some light on these problems I'd be gratefull!

Cheers,

ralvis

Re: Search results not working when accents used - Now Partially solved!

Hi -

I'm adding this solution in case others have a similar problem ...

I've solved the problem of search not working correctly when using accents. This problem was caused by the JCE editor. Once I changed the "Entity Encoding" in JCE Editor Configuration from "Named" to "Raw" and re-saved the translations in Joomfish, translations that contained accents started to work in the Search results.

Still having a problem with Search results having section/category in the wrong language.

Cheers,

ralvis

I have the same problem. But I'm not using Joomfish as I'm not translating chunks of text - simply using a large number of French names. How can I get Joomla search to recognise the names both with and without the accents?
