How to change “Search anything…”

  • I’d like to make “Search anything…” more accurate.

    ie. “Search Members…”, “Search Groups…”, “Search Group Forums…”

    Is there an easy way to do this without hacking core?

    This is what you want to change:

    `if ( !empty( $_POST ) && __( ‘Search anything…’, ‘buddypress’ )` in your theme’s ajax.php

    @gunju2221 Thanks, I saw that, but as far as I can tell, that’s for the hint text if searching using ajax (?)

    What I’ve done is replaced the appropriate strings in :

    bp-blogs/bp-blogs-templatetags.php
    bp-core/bp-core-templatetags.php
    bp-forums/bp-forums-templatetags.php
    bp-groups/bp-groups-templatetags.php

    which appears to have done the trick. Searches are working fine, as is the hint text.

    Let me know if you foresee any problem with this!

    Awesome, thanks @r-a-y .

    For anyone reading this thread, definitely do as suggested above, not as I did, which led to some unforseen complications.

    the language file has only one instance of “Search anything” so you can’t have a different message in the search boxes. how did you do it?

    Could @aljuk elaborate on the unforseen complications that arose from replacing the appropriate strings in bp-blogs/bp-blogs-templatetags.php etc. ?

    @cezar – I didn’t, for the precise reason you mentioned.

    @valuser – it broke the search on those directories.

    Changing it for certain other plugins that make use of search (Buddyvents, Global Forums) has been successful, and I did that by straightforward hacking those plugins.

    @cezar “the language file has only one instance of “Search anything” so you can’t have a different message in the search boxes. how did you do it?”

    Anyone found a workaround for this?

    ok I’ve made something really fast for you….

    0.1 place this function into your functions file at the end of the closing php tag ” ?> ” !

    `
    <?php
    function uloga_directory_search_form( $directory ) {
    global $bp;
    $form_id = ‘search-‘ . $directory . ‘-form’;
    $input_id = $directory . ‘_sarch’;
    $submit_id = $directory . ‘_search_submit’;

    $search_value = __( ‘Search ‘ . $directory, ‘buddypress’ );
    if ( !empty( $_REQUEST ) )
    $search_value = $_REQUEST;

    ?>
    <form action="" method="get" id="”>

    <input type="submit" id="” name=”groups_search_submit” value=”” />

    <?php
    }
    ?>

    `

    0.2 now you have to change the bp_directory_members_search_form() function with uloga_directory_search_form( $directory ) ,replace $directory for example with “Members”
    or “Groups” ,etc.

    p.s i mean you have to replace bp_directory_members_search_form() with the new function in your theme directory files.
