Search Posts Download 1.4

This component allows users to search for text that was used in a post that was written to the wall or to a group. Adds a "view post" button to each returned result. Adds a "Posts" link to the search menu.

Next: You can't always be sure your site is accessed from a logged in user. Log off and try

and most likely you'll get a crash

You'd better make use of if(ossn_isLoggedin()) { ....

Another step ahead, yes!
Still irritating:

$count_options = array("search_type" => true, "description" => $query, "count" => true);

What is it good for?

Hi Z-Man,
Thanks for the help with this. Moving the friends part into !isadmin of course only saves time and resources for admin users, but still a good call. Thank you for helping me understand the pagination a bit better. I have uploaded V1.3 ;)

Aside from that you should think about moving your friends part completely inside the !ossn_isAdminLoggedin() condition to avoid unnecessary queries if the admin is logged in. Actually I don't think this is the final solution anyway because it's missing all public records.

(Sorry, but I was unable to post the complete stuff all in one.)

            // since we use 2 different (admin/no admin) record queries now, we can't stay with only 1 count query any longer

            // $found['count'] = $count; no idea why this is passed to the view.php ? there's no 'count' being use in the code

Hi Jason,

great improvement on privacy in 1.2, but still issues with the pagination if a 'normal' user is logged in.
If you have a look into some classes you'll find that throughout Ossn adding a count=true to a query will return the number of records found instead of the data itself. But of course it always depends on the base query how many records will be returned.
That said, you can not use the admin base query for counting all the time, but you need to adapt it to your different rules when a normal user is logged in.
Otherwise you'll get a lot of pagination tabs at the bottom but no postings behind. So the corrected code should look something like this ...
