Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

1. Do a default search for literal "typos in HTML source pages" in current web. You get exactly two hits.

2. Using the same literal search, checkmark the "all webs" flag. You get zero hits.

This bug is confirmed on 4.0.2 on twiki.org, and on latest svn here on develop.twiki.org.

I am raising this bug to urgent since:

  • it does not make a good impression
  • search all webs search is done frequently
  • it is important to find content

I think I've found out where this problem is caused. I didn't know where to post a fix, so I'm editing this page.

In the WebSearch.txt file, there is a parameter to the %SEARCH which reads:

This didn't look right, so I changed it to read:
and the search works fine.

My guess is that the quotes in the literal search are breaking the parameter list to the %SEARCH and stopping it outputting anything at all.


Thanks Duncan for the debug help. After some investigation I found three bugs:

  1. Improper handling of zeroresults parameter.
  2. Improper handling of search string from URLPARAM. -- tracked separately in Item3383
  3. The search function has an early return in web loop after first web that has no hits, aborting search too early. -- tracked separately in Item3384

-- PTh

All three bugs are now fixed.
