The e-commerce.

search button not working good.


Recommended Posts


i am having this weird kind of problem with my site.

On the site there's a search box right and a button next to it to click to search.

So for me when i enter something in the field and press enter on my keyboard (as usually it works) it should go to the search results. but it dosent.

And when i click on the button to search it takes me to the advanced search page.


P.S: i am using a template and i also did some design changes in the header. so maybe i messed something. but not sure.

ANy clue please.


here is the code appears for search section.

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" style="auto">
											$v1=tep_draw_input_field('keywords', '', 'size="10" maxlength="30" class="input"') . '' . tep_hide_session_id();

											echo ($v1);
											<?php //echo tep_draw_separator('spacer.gif', '3', '1'); ?>												

<a href="<?=tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH)?>"><?php echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES.'k1.gif')?></a>

											<?php echo tep_draw_separator('spacer.gif', '30', '1'); ?><a href="<?=tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH)?>"><?=BOX_SEARCH_ADVANCED_SEARCH?></a>

As with some templates that looks kinda screwy. That should be in a <form></form>. Something like this

<?php echo tep_draw_form('quick_find', tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH_RESULT, '', 'NONSSL', false), 'get') . tep_draw_input_field('keywords', '', 'size="10" maxlength="30" style="width: ' . (BOX_WIDTH-30) . 'px"') . ' ' . tep_hide_session_id() . tep_draw_hidden_field('search_in_description' , '1') . tep_image_submit('button_quick_find.gif', BOX_HEADING_SEARCH) . '<br>' . BOX_SEARCH_TEXT . '<br><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH) . '"><b>' . BOX_SEARCH_ADVANCED_SEARCH . '</b></a></form>';?>

You may have to change the name of the images to yours.
