Purpose of the Mod
To cause placesearch.php to display the entire Place note. The thinking is that, since placesearch.php is essentially the "Place Details" program, if there is any program that should display the entire Place note, placesearch.php is that program.
How it works
Very simply - placesearch.php utilizes the TNG system function truncateIt() to display the Place note. TruncateIt, as the name suggests, truncates a text value to the length specified in a TNG system parameter. TruncateIt also removes any HTML code from the text. This mod simply replaces the call to truncateIt() within placesearch.php with a call to the TNG system function insertLinks(), which
- Does not truncate the note,
- Leaves existing HTML code within the note alone, and
- Recognizes web addresses that begin with "http", and converts them into hyperlinks.
The change implemented by this mod is also implemented as part of the much larger mod Placesearch-More Info, so that mod, appropriately, conflicts with this one. There are no other known incompatibilities, but please let me know if you encounter any.
