As I add more catalogue entries to my site, I'm noticing that the search function tied in to the tag cloud. For example, yesterday I tagged AT LEAST 15 entries with the tag "Don Potter". Clicking on this tag only returns one result: Search content - The (Home)School Club

How can I ensure that these results are accurate?

  • Using the 'search' function in default mode gives 3 results.
  • Amending the search criteria to include 'Catalogues' and 'Catalogue entries', and making "Don Potter" a quoted and Boolean search, gives 33 entries.
It is beyond my comprehension as to how the search algorithm is compiled, but perhaps a staff member will offer an explanation.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

33 sounds much more like the amount of times that keyword should show. Problem is that users who ceme on are going to want to be able to click on a tag in the tag cloud and see results right away, otherwise they will likely be gone with the wind.

Is there someone who can tell me which (I am assuming) php file(s) is responsible for the tag cloud and triggering these searches? I can probably find a solution from there. Thanks

Ah, I think you just need to configure the block settings for the side_tag_cloud again. Make sure catalogue_entries is chosen.

Fletch made a good point regarding quotes, there's a small bug in the tag cloud there, but it's not going to make it return fewer results.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
