UTF8 version : anyone interested in the package ?

UTF8 version : anyone interested in the package ?
July 02, 2009 03:47PM
Hello,
I made the modifications for a Sphider UTF8 version (which were pretty simple in fact...). Would anyone be interested ? Would the Sphider creator (Ando I think, right ?) be interested in hosting this version ? If there is enough interest, I might package that version and give it to the community so my work could be used not only by me and my employer !


Let me know if you're interested by posting in this thread...

PS : the modifications were mainly saving all files as UTF8, forcing UTF8 database and tables and adding a query to force UTF8 when inserting in "query_log" table for the suggestions...I'll continue to test it this week...

I am very interested!!! Need Sphider on a multi-language site with Russian and Czech.
Have you an idea when this could be available?

Thanks a lot for the great work!

I'm another one who would appreciate UTF8 plugin ;-) Polish language requires it a lot...

My small investigation took me only few minutes to achieve result I wanted, which is searching for words containing (funny for you) letters like ąęćźżłóńś... (Polish).

1. Change all /templates/.../header.html : iso-8859-1 to utf-8. By the way: I don't get one thing: why Western iso-8859-1 is default? I had to reedit languages/pl-language.php to get it working in a proper way.
2. After creating a new 'sphider' (or whatever) schema, I set utf_general_ci as the 'default comparison method for strings' (don't have English phpmyadmin, I guess that's the name) -> then tables created after that instruction will have the same attriute.
3. crawl the site, be happy and die old.

What exactly you had to do to edit the language file? I don't see any place you can change the charset in any of the language files.

Thanks.

I am using ubuntu. There was something wrong with my pl-language file - almost all (or even all) Polish diacritic letters where kinda broken (in mcedit it looks like there is a dot with the black background, normal background is blue). In the browser I found broken letters like '?' instead of Polish ones. Maybe it was due to encoding the file in iso-8859-1. I don't know how to change file encoding in mcedit, but I guess that was it.

Good luck, ask another questions if doubts.
