Hi,

I have a Select Multiple field in which I am storing the key/value pairs as JSON format in the DB. This works fine, when I var_dump the cck object the key and value arrays are returned just like I'd expect, value returning they key which is what I want.

The problem is I cannot use this field within Search form to filter items based on choices made. When I try to filter using the stored information I get a SQL error, with no real hint as to the cause of the issue:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'ORDER BY t2.myordering ASC LIMIT 8' at line 7


In the DB, the field is stored like:

{"name-i-defined":"key"}

My field configuration is:

JSON-FREE-fieldName[name-i-defined]

(I also tried Article storage instead of Free with no change)

I do notice the error does not occur only for my own custom field, but also one seblod includes e.g: Show Author - Select Simple field. The same issue is occur.

I set the Matching as "Any Words Exact", with correct seperator specified as my field uses ','.  But I tried other matching options and not one of them works except for 'None', which obviously isn't much help :).

Thanks for the help,

Nikck

Just to update: I can confirm the issue also occur when using the "Show Author" Select - Simple field on a brand new Joomla/Seblod installation. This looks like a Seblod problem.

Search is not implemented yet for json storage. You can use comma separated values to store select multiple fields.

Thanks Klas, is this limitation documented? I'll go ahead with using comma separated values instead.
