BuddyPress.org’s Unified Search – How can I get it?

  • I couldn’t help noticing BuddyPress.org’s unified search feature. Love the idea of having a search form with no select options. The search results are also nice in that they display results from each section of the site. Is this coming to BP or is this a plugin of some sort?

    Thank you all :)
    @stwc
    That’s a little more complex as I guess It involves two things(programmatically auto creation of groups(easy) and then Andy seems to be using Group Extension API,group meta for achieving the review functionality, and may be a modified plugin which already does the review and rating). I hope, Andy is going to make it available, if not, obviously we can achieve the same, perhaps I will do something similar for one of my site in near future and will let you know :)

    @apeatling, you solution is easy, but I was doing it for a theme, so I had to consider generalized case when we don’t know which components will be active and which won’t, That’s why I used the do_action/add action approach. Further If you want to change the order of display of search result for components, It will be just a matter of changing the priority in the add action.
    @r-a-y, haha you were perfectly right :)

    Three issues right now with Unified Search as far as my test…

    1. Seems like it is based on MU so it shows a search for “blogs”…
    Looks like this can be pulled by commenting the // show blogs search result section in the functions.php mod…

    2. It does not actually search the BLOG of the site (or doesn’t report it)… it shows a column for “blog search results” but does not populate… at least on my site. In other words, when I search for something that is clearly in a site blogpost, it returns nothing in the search results under Blog or Blogs..

    3. The Sidebar doesn’t show… at first glance, i thought it might be because it was using the -?php get_sidebar (); ?- pull but I changed that to -?php locate_template( array( ‘sidebar.php’ ), true ) ?- and it still doesn’t show (substituting – for brackets) …

    The CSS is a little messy… you can easily change this by adding the following to default.css and populating however …

    .memberss-search-result {
    display: block;
    border-bottom:2px dashed #628FBD ;
    margin: 12px;
    padding: 5px;
    color: #1B2C9E;
    }

    .groups-search-result {
    display: block;
    border-bottom:2px dashed #628FBD ;
    margin: 12px;
    padding: 5px;
    color: #1B2C9E;
    }

    .blog-search-result {
    display: block;
    border-bottom:2px dashed #628FBD ;
    margin: 12px;
    padding: 5px;
    color: #1B2C9E;
    }

    .blogs-search-result (display: block;
    border-bottom:2px dashed #628FBD ;
    margin: 12px;
    padding: 5px;
    color: #1B2C9E;
    }

    .forums-search-result {
    display: block;
    border-bottom:2px dashed #628FBD ;
    margin: 12px;
    padding: 5px;
    color: #1B2C9E;
    }

    Any Idea on how to fix 2 and 3 above? I would appreaciate it!

    Ok, so I went back to this because it’s need in our site… I got most of it to work:

    #1. is fixed by pulling this code in the add-on to the functions.php


    //show blogs search result
    function bpmag_show_blogs_search(){
    ?>

    <a href="" >

    <?php
    }
    //Hook Blogs results to search page if blogs comonent is active
    if(bp_is_active( 'blogs' ))
    add_action("advance-search","bpmag_show_blogs_search",10);

    #2 DOES work… something wrong with something I did when I tested it.

    #3 Does NOT work despite reading through and trying a number of things a the DEV site.

    I posted on the site to get some help.. if/when I get an answer I repost here…

    Is there still no fix??

    @brajesh has updated this on his site and now, I can say it is working 100% for me and is a MUST have for all BuddyPress sites, IMHO.

    @brajesh Is there anyway to get the unified search to also search the Activity Stream? Seems like a lot of people are asking and nobody has a clear cut way to do it yet. My site now has hundreds of updates with some pretty good threads that we can’t search via the site.

    Here is a thread with some code and thoughts about this here:

    Just wondering did he fix also the pagination for each search term? next -next-page as many following search results pages there are for a term.

    Genius discussion.

    EDIT: I’m just not quite clever enough today. Can this be made to work with Relevanssi? My search results are horrible, and I’d like the nicer excerpts and such that Relevanssi provides, also.

    awesommeee just found it too cool and exactly what i wanted hats off to Brajesh ji….

    I found a solution that works on the theme and supports updates to the core. This solution will let you use the search bar with the drop down menu and search for articles, members and groups.

    First, add this javascript inside the head tags in the header.php file of the theme:
    `

    var check_url = function() {
    var value = document.getElementById(“search-which”).value;
    if (value==”article”) {
    document.getElementById(“search_form”).method=”get”;
    document.getElementById(“search_form”).action=””;
    document.getElementById(“search-terms”).name=”s”;
    }
    else {
    document.getElementById(“search_form”).method=”post”;
    document.getElementById(“search_form”).action=””;
    document.getElementById(“search-terms”).name=”search-terms”;
    }
    }

    `

    And then replace the search form that comes with buddypress (inside the same header.php file) with this one:
    (to avoid confusions just look at the php lines that wrap the form)

    ` `
    `

    `


    `Members`
    ` Groups`
    `Articles`
    `<input type="submit" name="search-submit" id="searchsubmit" value="” onclick=”check_url()” />`

    `

    `
