Search for Blog not building proper URL for result

  • Hello,


    Revisiting this problem from a year ago. I have built a search page from the blog section of a site and the search is functioning except for one thing: the URL for for the found pages doesn't include the blog slug. For example, the result_url for the found page will be "//2019-04-22-new-adoption" rather than "/blog/2019-04-22-new-adoption".


    The search results page uses this code:


    Debug shows this:

    And showall gives me this:

    perch_index_in_set 1
    perch_zero_index_in_set 0
    perch_first_in_set true
    perch_namespace perch:search

    Finally, in settings, theBlog post page path is

    Code
    1. /{blogSlug}/{postSlug}

    and the slug format is:

    Code
    1. %Y-%m-%d-{postTitle}

    I'm at a complete loss.


    Thanks, Tim

    Approved the thread.
  • I discovered that this:

    PHP
    1. <?php
    2. $query = perch_get('q');
    3. perch_content_search($query, array(
    4. 'count'=>10,
    5. 'excerpt-chars'=>300,
    6. 'apps'=>'PerchBlog',
    7. 'no-conflict' => true,
    8. 'template'=>'search-result.html'
    9. ));
    10. ?>

    Specifically the 'apps'=>'PerchBlog' was what was causing the problem. Changing it to 'result_source'=>'PerchBlog' fixed the problem.

    PHP
    1. <?php
    2. $query = perch_get('q');
    3. perch_content_search($query, array(
    4. 'count'=>10,
    5. 'excerpt-chars'=>300,
    6. 'result_source'=>'PerchBlog',
    7. 'no-conflict' => true,
    8. 'template'=>'search-result.html'
    9. ));
    10. ?>
  • Hi,


    The value of the apps option needs to be an array not a string:



    To restrict search to certain apps, pass an array of app names (e.g. PerchBlog, PerchEvents), otherwise search is unrestricted.


    So to restrict the search to the Blog app you would use:


    PHP
    1. perch_content_search($query, array(
    2. 'count' => 10,
    3. 'excerpt-chars' => 300,
    4. 'apps' => ['PerchBlog'],
    5. 'no-conflict' => true,
    6. 'template' => 'search-result.html'
    7. ));
  • Well, I thought I'd resolved it, but that was premature. Tried the above and that didn't work.


    My blog settings are:

    Code
    1. perch_blog_post_url: /{blogSlug}/{postSlug}
    2. perch_blog_slug_format: %Y-%m-%d-{postTitle}

    With perch:showall, the URL of the blog post that displays in search results is missing the full address, which is present in the blog post itself. So, for a post with a URL of:


    http://testserver.com/blog/2019-04-22-new-adoption


    That same URL in the search results is:


    //2019-04-22-new-adoption


    Anyone?

  • Still haven't solved this problem. It appears that for some reason the search results page is not getting the postURL for the URL, but I haven't been able to figure out how to rectify it.
