\ inside the name

Submitted by Tobix on Tue, 2021-11-30 17:31 in

Hi David, how can I resolve for products that use \ inside the name? If I type for example CSTG 272DE / 1-11 it tells me product not found even though I know that this is in the database. In fact, if I type: CSTG 272DE is found.
Thank you

Hello Tobix,

That is because the version of the product name used by the basic search is based on the normalised name with characters like "/" removed but this can be safely changed to be the full name. To try this, edit includes/admin.php and look for the following code at line 468:

    $searchName = tapestry_search($normalisedName);

...and REPLACE with:

    $searchName = tapestry_search($importRecord["name"]);

(and then re-import to apply the changes...)

A first impact seems to work! Great :)
