New, cool and exciting search feature!!!! [NOREQ]

Post by DancingWind » Tue Dec 21, 2004 9:22 pm

it would be nice if search function would be more inteligent as for exempel there wouldn't be any diference between strings "XXX" and " XXX" and "XXX " and " XXX "
because now if you copy paste and tghere is a "space" ta the end or at the begining of the string there is "no matches found" it's realy annoying
also then there are spaces between words in a string like "XXX YYY" isn't the same as "XXX YYY"
Well maybe im wrong about this but please look in to this
It's not a bug but i spot witch could use a little tweaking

in fact this has been requested several times in the past.
but it's not a bug, it's a feature.
it allows you to search for word boundaries.

so don't expect to see any changes to the current behaviour in respect to spaces.
however, some ppl have suggested that a warning message and a ready to use link should be added to the result page if a leading/trailing space was part of the search query.
this is not yet ontodo though.

BYe!

Ok then I'll have it in mind
Come to think of it then it's a really good feature but a warning would be nice :)
