    Default Search Issue - forward slash causes errors

    I have a user trying to search the vba dynamics section using a forwards slash in his keyword string and it's bringing up errors. The search term is "a/c line". Is there a setting I need to change to fix this?

    I've verified the error on my own using the same search term. Thoughts?

    FYI - just jumped over to the VBA Dynamics demo site and tested this and got the same error:

    Search using the forward slash and you'll see what I mean.

    Thank you for pointing this out. I've just updated the download package here to include the fix, so if you will download the files from here again and update the forum/includes/vba_dyna_functions.php file on your server then that should take care of the issue.
    Or if you'd rather apply the fix manually just look in the file for this line:
    PHP Code:
    $word preg_quote($word); 
    And replace it with this:
    PHP Code:
    $word preg_quote($word'/');
