Hello all,

I have a small hack that might be usefull to someone hopefully. This hack to xcgal include/search.php will, when a users uses xoops search or for example mysearch to search your site, return the an album title and link to that albums thumbnail rather than return the picture info.

The reason for this hack is that on a site i manage, i have a custom lightbox and intermediate pictures turned off when searching i noticed that picture thumbnails where showing but where not clickable in anyway so I thought that returning the album title and link to the album thumbnails page would be much better.

So heres the code i have commented out unneeded code rather than deleting it, i have tested it on xoops core search and mysearch module and it seems to work fine, any feedback would be appreciated.

I don't if you're talking about the same module but there is a hack for a long time here : http://www.tenthstone.com/2008/09/xcgal-search-patch/
