All,

I took the default Joomla contacts search bot, copied the XML and PHP files and modified them to query the CB table and fields I wanted. I attach it in case it's useful to others.

To modify it, change the .php file as follows:

1. On line 66, change the field names to show the field values you wish to use as the descriptive text of your results page.

(a is the default jos_users table; b is the default jos_comprofiler table)

In this case, I'm showing the name field from users and 4 custom fields from my CB profiles.

2. On lines 73 to 77, specify the fields you'd like to search. You can add or remove rows, just maintain the proper SQL syntax.

3. You may wish to change the order options found in the switch on rows 47 to 61.

I'm a newbie at all this, so hopefully others will be able to help if there are questions, but I've tested the files as they are in the attachment and they work fine for me.

{EDIT: Forgot to mention - install it and publish it as you would any mambot. The default search in Joomla will then include the CB fields you specify.]

Liz

This is a very neat bot Liz. Although it's a workaround of something which is really missing in CB, for now it's definitely a good alternative. I think what everybody is looking for is something like this:

http://community.joomla100.com/component/option,com_comprofiler/task,cbsearch/Itemid,48/

Hopefully we'll see this feature in the very near future ;)

The search feature is actually my code, written when CB was still beta 4. I don't know if anyone modified it since then.

I AM looking into re-writing it for RC2 / 1.0 stable but it still seems far away. Right now, I'm programming an internal messaging system for Joomla (like uddeIM and others). It's taking a long time (I'm not very skilled at programming, so it's a learning effort).

But it would be cool to get the search feature running (again), this time for RC2/1.0 final. But I am very sorry that I cannot give any guarantees on success and ETA.

Cheers from

Ford :)
