Search child pages but display parent pages in results with no duplication

Recommended Posts

I've built a site that uses parent pages as the "container" for child pages:

Parent page [page.php]
-- Child page [unit-child-a.php]
-- Child page [unit-child-b.php]
---- Grandchild page [subunit-grandchild-a.php]
---- Grandchild page [subunit-grandchild-b.php]
-- Child page [unit-child-c.php]

The child pages are displayed as content on the corresponding parent page using the render method. Some child pages also include their own child pages. (Internally the child page template names start with "unit-" and the grandchild page template names start with "subunit-".)

Example:

foreach ($page->children("template=template-name,sort=sort") as $child) echo $child->render();

This approach allows content administrators to add and reorder child pages as necessary, but I've come across an issue that I'm not sure how to address.

The site includes search functionality, but when a visitor searches for content and it is found in a child or grandchild page, the Parent page should be the one that is displayed in the search results, since the child and grandchild pages are not directly viewable. Since some searches could include more than one child or grandchild page of a parent page, this sometimes means that a parent page could be included more than once.

How do I easily redirect the child and grandchild pages to the parent page, and only include the parent page once in the search results?

      I want to allow full text search on my site. There is a very nice solution that comes right out of the box:
      $selector = "title|body~=$q, limit=50"; This works, but to make it even better I would want to give higher weight to pages where the search term occurs in the title, than if it just occurs in the body. After all, a page with the title "Wine from France" is probably the best match for the search "france wine". How do I accomplish this in ProcessWire?
      I can see three possible paths, but I am not very fond of any of them:
      Do a direct SQL query, circumventing the API, along these lines. But I would prefer to abstract away the database layout if at all possible. Use something like ElasticSearch, but to be honest that would be to complicated to set up and maintain in the long run. Make multiple lookups, first for matches in the title, then for matches in the body, and merge and sort in PHP. My suspicion is that this would get complicated quite quickly. For instance, how do you deal with a page that has two of the three search terms in the title and the third in the body? Is there a magic option four I should look into? Or are any of the above options better than the others? Any input is welcome!

      Hi everyone,
      I'm working on a CLI script that renders paginated pages.
      Therefore I iterate trough paginated pages and set the page number and render the result.
      My problem is, after calling the render function for the first time, the output doesn't change even if I change the page number.
       
      DEMO:
      I'm using a template that renders a pagination of its children:
      <?php echo $page->children("limit=3")->render(); ?> I can view the paginated results in the Browser:
      /page-rendering-pagination/ /page-rendering-pagination/page2 /page-rendering-pagination/page3 ... When trying to render the different pages using the API I always get the first result, even if I change the page Number.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; include('./index.php'); wire('input')->setPageNum(1); $p = wire('pages')->get('/page-rendering-pagination'); var_dump($p->render()); // renders first three items wire('input')->setPageNum(2); var_dump($p->render()); // also renders the first three items Am I missing something? Is there some kind of caching mechanism that I'm not aware of?
      Thanks for your help.

      Hello,
      I have a search page loosely based on Skyscrapers where I'm parsing a selector with options 'beds', 'bathrooms', 'size' fields. It is working well until I select 'Any' after I've run a search. This is where no results are returned (/?beds=&bathrooms=&size=&submit=). I want it to reset and show all results.
      I hope this isn't too vague.

      Hey there,
      i am trying to add a kind of "intelligent" search.
      Is there any way to ignore punctuation and extra chars.
      e.g.
      When I type "somebody elses" that I still get the result "SOMEBODY ELSE´S CAR, 2005"
      The problem is the extra ´ … if I don't type it I don't get the result.
      So far I am using %=query (which isn't enough, I know)
      So the idea would be something like that:
      $selector = "sanitize(title|text)%=$q, limit=50";
      I know, it's not gonna work like that … just to illustrate.
      Best,
      Stefan

      Hello!
      I'm making my way through my first encounter with ProcessWire, and I'm very near the end of my tasks! I've searched Google, these forums, and for add-ons, but I haven't found any documentation or reference work for implementing boolean searching in the native CMS? Am I missing a thread, add-on, or docs that can point the way? I'm sure I'm not the first to have a need like this? Thanks in advance!
