Laravel or where

Questions:

Currently I am working on a project in Laravel but I am stuck.I want to create a SQL statement like this:

SELECT * FROM SPITems WHERE publisher_id=? AND feed_id=? AND (title LIKE '%?%' OR description LIKE '%?%')

Now I have this code:

$query = SPItem::orderBy('title');
if(isset($_GET['publisherID']) && is_numeric($_GET['publisherID']))
{
    $query = $query->where('publisher_id', $_GET['publisherID']);
}
if(isset($_GET['productFeedID']) && is_numeric($_GET['productFeedID']))
{
    $query = $query->where('program_id', $_GET['feedID']);
}
if(isset($_GET['search']))
{
    $query = $query->orWhere('title', 'like', '%' . $_GET['search'] . '%');
    $query = $query->where('description', 'like', '%' . $_GET['search'] . '%');
}

But that generates:

SELECT * FROM SPITems WHERE (publisher_id=? AND feed_id=?) OR (title LIKE '%?%') AND description LIKE '%?%'

How can I get the correct “or” order?

Answers:

Check out the Parameter Grouping section in the docs:

https://laravel.com/docs/master/queries#parameter-grouping

It explains how to group conditions in the WHERE clause.

It should be something like:

if(isset($_GET['search']))
{
    $query = $query->where(function($query){
        $query->where('title', 'like', '%' . $_GET['search'] . '%')
              ->orWhere('description', 'like', '%' . $_GET['search'] . '%');
    });
}

You can use whereRaw

SPItem::whereRaw(" publisher_id=? AND feed_id=? AND (title LIKE '%?%' OR description LIKE '%?%')", array(?,?,?,?))
