[SOLVED] search doesn't work for cyrillic language


Recommended Posts


My quick search block doesn't work correctly. It shows proper results when I try searching for english titles and it shows nothing when I search for cyrillic titles. The odd thing is that ajax quick search is working just fine.


For example when I make a search for the russian word "перчатки". I have the correct matches displayed in ajax quick search :




But when I hit "Enter" it says: Please enter a search keyword.


How do I fix it ?


Thanks in advance!

It was some sort of url encode issue.


I had to encodeURIComponent of the search input on submit event (via Javascript).


I also had to employ some hidden input to store my newly encoded string to make it look nice.


hope this topic will help others not to waste several hours.


cheers :)
