sheik, thats an issue for all fulltext indexers, see here
[sphinxsearch.com]

momo, if I see this correctly it orders by date ascending, right?
strange as I set the ordering mode to date desc.

Yes Thomas.
I see at tour code and we have desc ordering.
Perhaps the problem comes because i'm using french date format ?!

no, it uses the internal date format which doesn't have anything to do with what you are using for output.

momo, I've uploaded a new version to this thread.
please try that one. it should fix the problem with the date-ordering.
you only need to replace mods/sphinx_search/sphinx_search.php with the one from that archive.

Perfect Thomas.
Now it's good. ;)

Another little bug. When we make a search with a keyword, this keyword appear in bold. That's good !

But in the little description of the message sometimes you have a cut before the </stong> for keyword.
So the following results are all in bold.

Do you understand what i mean ?

yes I understand but I can't do anything about this beside completely disabling the
highlightning as I'm not doing neither the cut nor the bold-marking manually as this is done by the sphinx-daemon too.
can you point me to a search leading to that result? I might try to report it as a bug to the sphinx-folks.

Hello Thomas,

Always me. :)

I have a question with other charset for sphinx search.
I use french language (iso-8859-1 charset).
So if i make a search on "été" in french it returns 0 result.

Can i switch the charset ?
I've seen that you have only the choice between utf8 or sbcs charset.

Thanks

if sphinx itself doesn't support other charsets, then it won't work, thats for sure.
where did you see the hint about utf8/sbcs?
is it really related to sphinxsearch in a whole or just some part of it?
I remember some part about the excerpt generator only working with utf8 ( [sphinxsearch.com] ) but not the whole sphinx.

Btw. sbcs is *single-byte encoding*, so its about all the other charsets used beside utf-8 (in my opinion) ... some docs are there what you'd need to specify in sphinx:
[sphinxsearch.com]

I added some changes to the module. I uploaded the new version 0.8 to the start of this thread.

Hi Thomas and Maurice,

There is a little bug.
On sphinx.conf file you wrote :
path = /usr/local/sphinx/var/data/phorum5_HEAD
Should be :
path = /usr/local/sphinx/var/data/phorum5_HEAD_msg


Then on sphinx_search.php you wrote :
$index_name_author = "phorum5_HEAD__author";
Should be :
$index_name_author = "phorum5_HEAD_author";

There is two underscore, unless one is expected.
