PHP/MySql search engine special characters paging problem
Posted on 2010-08-14
When I submit search form (method GET) I got results from search query (although special characters display like % and numbers in address bar of the browser). I also have paging but links for page numbers are not like submit form and when I click on page number query won't work no more for words with special caracters. It's beacuse I GET $search term for page numbers from url and not from submit form. I have tried urlencode and rawurlencode and results change depending on the browser (somewhere query works somwhere don't). Is there some easy solution for search engine with paging for words with special characters?
If not what do you think of making a new temp table in MySql database that will hold session and search term?
