View Full Version : Perlfect Search Results Have Source Code

07-27-2006, 03:27 PM
Does anyone know how to prevent Perlfect Search from putting source code into some of the results?
I have it successfully installed and running except for this results issue.
When I search for "calendar", some of the results have source code.
I am also running EventCalendar (a Wordpress plug-in)--could that be conflicting with Perlfect?
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it.

I have noticed that the only results that come back strange are the ones that Wordpress is publishing. Any ideas how to make Wordpress and Perlfect Search play nicely together?

I don't use Perlfect Search, but I found this on their website:
Perlfect Search ReadMe (http://www.perlfect.com/freescripts/search/readme.shtml#indexing)
Indexing your site

After the script has been installed, you will need to index your site in order to be able to perform searches.

Most people want to index the files as they are on the server's disk, and this is what will happen by default. If your pages are generated dynamically (e.g. via PHP) you will want to index them via http. This is also important for security reasons, as dynamic files might contain passwords that should not be indexed in their source. To index dynamic pages, load conf.pl into an editor and set $HTTP_START_URL.

You might also want to look through the Perlfect Search FAQ (http://www.perlfect.com/freescripts/search/faq.shtml#U8).
