This is in regards to the following bug https://github.com/Geeklog-Core/geeklog/issues/884

If you use Static Pages with PHP or templates, the search results returned by Geeklog could show any code embedded in the page. This has now been fixed as all pages that use these features will now save a cached copy of the final executed page. This cached page is generated on the save of the page in the editor and (if page cache enabled) when a new cached file of the page is made. This means that all users that have access to the page will use the same search cache. If autotags, PHP, or the is device_mobile template variable is used by the page this may generate different contents depending on the user. Since the search cache is only one view of the page it will be the one searched. Therefore what the search result returns may be slightly different than what the user will see when they visit the page. Please take this short coming into consideration when using template and php pages and having the "Include in Search" config option set to true (config options includesearchphp and/or includesearchtemplate).

Unfortunately, updating this search cache during the install is not possible as runtime errors could occur (if for example the page needs something that the installer cannot access) or other issues could crop up (like a php redirect stored in a staticpage) and will interrupt the install.

Therefore after the upgrade, before these pages search cache can be created and searched on, you must: Pages that are not cached must be saved again, Pages that use the page cache must be visited or saved again. These pages will not appear in the search results until this is done.

For an automated script to perform this process automatically after the upgrade is complete, create a text file with the following name "fix-staticpage-issue-884.php" in the public_html directory of your geeklog website. Add the code below to the file and save it.

Please make sure all staticpages that could cause runtime errors or redirects are saved as a draft so that this script can execute.
