Problem with search

  1. 5 years ago

    Search does not search for these words
    link-external

  2. Looks like you're right...

    Search results are different with the following to search strings

    link-external
    "link-external"

    Second one works how expected...

    Works as intended. The hyphen (-) is a special symbol which negates a gambit. So searching for link-external is really searching for any posts that contain the word "link" and do NOT contain the word "external".

  4. Hi @Toby ,
    but the "-" also combines two words.
    Maybe the NOT should be start with a space?

    link-external // search as string, "-" used as word connector
    link -external // use as NOT contain because it isn't a word connector
  5. I agree with @pwFoo. They way it works currently should be changed. The space before the hyphen is key.
