TOPIC: JomSocial search field link inconsistency

JomSocial search field link inconsistency 10 years, 11 months ago #40297

JoomSEF: 4.4.3
JomSocial extension: 3.1.16

On JomSocial user profile section, there are links that show you other users with the same field value. When these fields have types other than text field (e.g. checkbox, select, etc.), JoomSEF fails to create unique SEF links.

Below are some of the examples:

Working SEF link:
SEF created: jomsocial/field/canada
Old URL: index.php?option=com_community&FIELD_COUNTRY=Canada&task=field&view=search&Itemid=595

Non-Working SEF link
SEF created: jomsocial/field
Old URL: index.php?option=com_community&FIELD_PERSONALTRAITS=Sensitive&task=field&type=checkbox&view=search&Itemid=595

All field links with those field types get the incomplete "jomsocial/field" link, resulting in multiple "jomsocial/field" links.

See attachment for visual mapping.

I assume I get the next version of your extension for free when / if this issue is solved?

How do I know when the next version is released? Do I get notified by email?

You can update our extensions for one year for free as described in our terms of service.
You can check for new versions of JoomSEF extensions on the Manage Extensions page in JoomSEF. There's also the Update button present for each extension that can be updated. Make sure that you have your Download ID set in the extension's parameters.

Just so I might be able to get my hands on the updated version before my one year subscription of the extension expires (2014), I will give you a pointer for a fix as I got my extension to work.

Your extension works only with preset search field parameters of JomSocial.

Around Line 677 under function create(&$uri),

 
case 'search':
if(isset($task)) {
switch($task) {
case 'field':
$title[]=$task;
@$title[]=$FIELD_GENDER;
@$title[]=$FIELD_STATE;
@$title[]=$FIELD_CITY;
@$title[]=$FIELD_COUNTRY;
@$title[]=$FIELD_COLLEGE;
@$title[]=$FIELD_GRADUATION;
 


Whatever field that are not listed here will not work, so I manually added custom fields in order for them to work in my search. Your goal will be to automatically pick up custom fields in this function.

Hope this helps.
