problem with search in drupal

Postby [email protected] » Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:00 am

whenever i switch to a gtranslated language and make a search, it kicks me back to english version. how can i get rid of this annoying error? it would be meaningless to translate pages if it doesn't work while users search for something. is there a way that it redirects back to the language (after it does the search action in english)? or briefly, how can i solve this issue anyway?

well the problem is: the drupal core search module insists on linking to the real language prefix on the submit link, and not the gtranslated language prefix. How can i get over this issue?

i believe there must be some way, i tried in drupal 6 and 7, both have the same problem on search results (unfortunately) i guess anyone who uses gtranslate on drupal should have had this issue before, so if there's an easy solution, please let me know.

well, still no replies and i am really done with waiting for an answer via forum/email, and no replies, no support, nothing.

I have decided not using the gtranslate module, which is not working the way it should be, so i demand a refund of my bulk purchase.

please do not give promises about future support etc. i really am not interested anymore. just make the refund please.

Please find my response in our conversation over chat, I think I have directed you to a right solution:

10:54 PM alp: hello
10:55 PM i wonder if gtranslate will be able to work on drupal searches?
me: Hi, do you have something urgent? I'm busy now
10:56 PM alp: well at least your view is urgent.. aboıut if it's possible or not?
me: It doesnt conflict if you are asking that
10:57 PM alp: well it does return to the english version (by default)
its about drupal module mostly, coz it gives a static link on submit button
but as a result.. the translated page rolls back english on every search request
10:58 PM me: You can use google search if you want to be able to search in other languages
In your site
Like on my site
10:59 PM alp: nope you didnt get it...
of course i want it to search in english (primary) language
and translate it onto the selected language
for example de
11:00 PM the problem is... every link on the page has the selected lang prefix, but not search box.. it has a en/ prefix
by default
11:01 PM me: If you use the default search
It will return to main language
alp: yes thats what i mean? how can i get rid of this situation
11:02 PM me: Use google search in your site like on my site
alp: well that way will i need a "powred by google" sign on the box?
i don't want that
me: No need for that
alp: plus: i need an advanced search?
11:03 PM i mean i need to filter taxonomies etc
that is essential
11:04 PM me: Just check the drupal modules directory
You will find
one
11:05 PM alp: all search modules are working with the core module
unfortunately
11:06 PM me: No that cannot be that way
11:07 PM Google search
Doesnt use drupal core
alp: but it doesnt have advanced search?
ie: search on taxonomy filters
me: Search the web how to add google search
11:11 PM alp: does it have advanced features on drupal taxonomies?
like filtering them?
i guess not?
11:13 PM me: No, it just searching in indexed pages you have in google
alp: and its no use for me if i cant use it with a filtered search
i know
that is not what i need
i need a real search site module
that integrates between taxonomies of drupal
11:14 PM with dropdown category filters etc
(in other words, i need a "drupal" search)
11:15 PM me: Well it will be in default language then
You can modify it
alp: how?
me: To change the language
alp: modify what?
the search module?
me: I'm busy sorry, don't have time now
alp: i couldnt find a place in the module to modify it to see the sitemap pah prefixes of gtranslate
me: Write me on email
Or on the forum
11:16 PM alp: well ok i did
?
in the forum
and im afraid i wont be able to use it if this doesnt work
cause all my stes need search, the advanced way
2 of them are recipes sites
that can not be run with google search or a simple search mechanism

I have responded to you as you can see from the previous post.

If you don't want to use it, it is your choice.

I'm not going to make a refund, since the product works as it supposed to work.
