  • Search has bugs


    the search did not find entries if we search for a part of a name and the search part has an * infront.
    For example we have this entry in the database: Markt *447 Baumeister
    This search works: 447 Bau
    This works not: 447

    We have a lot of markets with a marketnumber prefixed with an *, so we didnt not want to change the data.

    Search works only if the length is not less then 4, or the other parameter 'textFilterContainsMinLength' in config.php


    • #3
      Search for a length of 3 works already, but not if the part i search for has a * prefix.

        * is a wildcard for text search since 5.3.0.

        You can use 'Add Field' search. Wildcard '*' is not applied there.

          I dont use a wildcard, i search for example: 456
          This gives als search result for example:
          "Market 456 over here"
          but it did not find
          "Market *456 over there"

          If i search for: 456 over
          it got both markets:
          "Market 456 over here"
          "Market *456 over there"

          Also i tried searches without/with wildcard.

          Search for 044 gives
          "044 Market here"

          Search for 044*Market
          didnt find it, but it should.

          It only works if an * is added to the end.
          Search for 044*Market* finds it again.
          "044 Market here"

          Thats confusing and not intiutive.
          There should be an tooltip for the searchfield which explains the search usage and restictions.

            Updated to 5.3.3, the search still has the same bug. For example if i want to find "Market *445 Hamburg", and search it with "445" it is not found.

              Tested with 5.3.4, i have still the same problem. Please response if this is going to change or we must replace the wildcard in our customers names.

              Pic 1: Search for "wand" did find name with "*wand"
              Pic 2: Search for "050 bau" did find name with "... *050 Bau....."
              Pic 3: Search for "050" did not find name with "... *050 Bau...." <-That is a problem for us.
              It is find only another customer that starts with "050"
