Search box problem


Recommended Posts

I am having a search box problem, ever since I've added a few contributions/mods.


The issue is that the product description is ending up inside the search box.


You can see whast is happening here (look in the search box):



The search code that I am using is as follows:


Quick Find</font>

<form name="quick_find" method="get" action="http://www.varnco.com/catalog/catalog/advanced_search_result.php"> 

<input type="text" name="keywords" size="10" maxlength="30" value="" style="width: 95px"> <input type="submit" value="go"><br>


I can't figure out why it's calling the product description into the text entry box for search since value is set to "". Any ideas?


Any help is appreciated.

I added the following code to productinfo.php, so it would display the product name in the title and add keywords into the header:


// BOF added by varnco for product in title and meta tags

if (isset($products_id)) { 

$product_info = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_id = '" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'] . "' and pd.products_id = '" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'] . "' and pd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "'"); 

$product_info_values = tep_db_fetch_array($product_info); 

$keywords = strip_tags($product_info_values['products_description']); 

$keywords = substr($keywords, 0, 250); 


// EOF added by varnco for product in title and meta tags


Any reason why the 2 "$keywords" command would cause the product description to show up within the search box in addition to the header?

Not really 'fixed' but rather, I commented out the two lines that calls for keywords. I commented out these two lines, which are the culprit:


$keywords = strip_tags($product_info_values['products_description']);

$keywords = substr($keywords, 0, 250);


I'll go ahead an put them back in, so perhaps someone can tell me why the above "$keywords=" is automatically entering the product description into my search box.
