Orca Search 2.0 beta released

Apr 28, 2005

So many people have been asking and because it's pretty stable (at least on my server!) I finally let the search script loose. Download it or get the details!

This is actually the second rebuild since version 1.2! I built a new version after I abandoned 1.2 but coded myself into so many dead ends that I decided to start over a second time :) I think it turned out much better the second time around!

You can try it yourself, but since it's beta code, I can't offer full support for it yet. I'm still actively working on this script so any problems you encounter may have already been fixed in a new version. Also, please don't translate any of the files in this script yet. I still haven't rigged it up for translation so it is only available in English, for now.

However, if you do find bugs (and there are bugs), please let me know! I want this to become one of my best scripts ever. And only you can help me "make it so". ;)

    Hi,

    I uploaded the new os2 and was easily able to get to the log in screen. The problem is when I try to log in it tells me there is already someone logged and lets me go no future.

    Thinking there might be a cookie of me logged in somewhere else I closed all other browsers and cleared cookies and got the same results.

    Is this one of those friendly bugs you where talking about?

    Thanks,
    Tio Rocky

    Russ,

    I have no problems logging in, but the cookie thing was a problem originally. I thought I fixed it though. On thing which might be a problem, are you running the original version of the script at the same time? (the 1.x version) This version might use the same cookie name.

    Otherwise, could I have a look at your installation URI? Send me the URI and username/password via email (using mt Contact form on the "The Author" page) and I'll check into it.

    These are the kinds of things I want to fix :) I have only run the script on two or three different servers.
