Thanks everybody for this hack. I have been meaning to do this for the past
year. Had I known it could be so simple to implement, I would have done it

Best regards,

I see I didn't reply accurately enough to the initial question.

I might hack swish.cgi around line 798:

if ( $search->hits ) {
	$search->set_navigation; # sets links

and add:

if ( $search->hits ) {
	$search->set_navigation; # sets links
} else {

	print MYLOG "no matches for query: $search->{q}\n";


or however you want to dump it (e.g, tie to a db and make a new
record with the time, other env variables, etc.)
