What can i do to use the Search Module only with an Input Field (Search Field) and searching for all Fields and not just the description field?

Everytime i want to Search one of my Ads the Module just find something when it stands in the description Field? Words like an Postalcode, City or other things i have Fields for the Search dont find?

I dont want to put the Fields in the Module, there are many Fields and i just want to use one Input Field where i can put a Free Text or just a Word i want to search for, what can i do here?

You need to custom the code to do that.

Open the file administrator/components/com_adsmanager/models/content.php and find the line 359:

$search .= $temp. "$idsearch MATCH (a.ad_headline,a.ad_text) AGAINST (".$this->_db->Quote($filter)." IN BOOLEAN MODE)) ";

Add the field you want between the () with ad_headline and ad_text. For example, if you have a field called ad_myfield add it like this :
$search .= $temp. "$idsearch MATCH (a.ad_headline,a.ad_text,ad_myfield) AGAINST (".$this->_db->Quote($filter)." IN BOOLEAN MODE)) ";

Please be aware that this method is very fast but doesn't work for word or number than have less than a certain number of characters.

That limit is set by the server configuration and is set as 3 by default.

Best regards.
