Hack for a problem with the search module in Joomla 1.5.11

If you don’t want all your search results to open on the front page of your website just use this hack. After it they will open on a separate page.

Just open your-site/components/com_search/controller.php

Find this part:

// No need to guess Itemid if it’s already present in the URL
if (JRequest::getInt(‘Itemid’) > 0) {
$post[‘Itemid’] = JRequest::getInt(‘Itemid’);
} else {

// set Itemid id for links
$menu = &JSite::getMenu();
$items    = $menu->getItems(‘link’, ‘index.php?option=com_search&view=search’);

if(isset($items[0])) {
$post[‘Itemid’] = $items[0]->id;
}

}

Change it to this:

// set Itemid id for links
$menu = &JSite::getMenu();
$items    = $menu->getItems(‘link’, ‘index.php?option=com_search&view=search’);

if(isset($items[0])) {
$post[‘Itemid’] = $items[0]->id;
}
