Strange appearance of search result

I have noticed that sometimes search results show big ammounts of text below topic title. For example, I search by the word "forum" on this forum and under number 28 get the following:

28. Posted: 20 Aug 2007 04:46 - Other / gzcompress() large strings
...'t make sense for miniBB. First of all, we're using TEXT type fields for storing the messages, not BLOB fields like the author uses. TEXT type is limited in size to 64 Kbytes and most often forum messages do not overlimit even 2-3 Kb. Second, this field is used in the internal search algorithm, and gz'compressed fields can not be searched by regular text. The author writes about it too, "The only exception is when I need full text indexing capabilities." About validating the emails - as I already wrote in the linked thread, it's not a way to validate the emails in full, so it's not even useful to use such approach. As you may read the author refers to this method as to "Partially validating email addresses." The only interesting thing I discovered is that author suggests "to store IP addresses as integers instead of strings in a database". This was a known issue for us when we started miniBB, however until these days the IP is stored as character field. Most probably it would be more efficient to implement this issue in the future... Thanks for the information....

Thanks, it appears so... I will work on it in the forthcoming release.

Well, it appears to be a childish mistake :-)

To fix it yourself, edit bb_func_search.php and locate the following:


it should be:


Will be fixed in the forthcoming release 2.1. Thanks again.
