Then you've experienced no phrase searches, but merely keyword searches that strip quotes from your input. A keyword search will naturally also find results where keywords appear in the same order without anything inbetween.wilsonlogan wrote:My experience is that if you search for

Wilson, actually, what I think you're seeing is exact phrase search with a twist. Based on my testing (ver.3.0.14), when quotes are used, the search results ONLY include posts that include the exact phrase. However, all instances of the words contained within the quotes are highlighted. In your example, a comment with "My friend Dunkin likes Donuts" must have also contained the exact phrase "Dunkin Dounuts." I can see how that would be confusing.wilsonlogan wrote:..results... contain "Dunkin Donuts" but also results like

which to me is not an exact phrase search. Unless I'm missing something...

Such a thing does not exist: if you're searching for a phrase it's already something exact. The terms you and wilsonlogan are using are redundant like "IRC chat" or "ATM machine".davidbutler wrote:exact phrase search
No, not the exact phrase - the phrase. Period. What would be a non-exact phrase anyway?davidbutler wrote:(ver.3.0.14), when quotes are used, the search results ONLY include posts that include the exact phrase.
Leaving apart that phpBB does not know comments either (those are posts) let me help distinguishing this: search results display only those posts (or topics) which have the phrase you searched for. The highlighting in those displayed posts however is flawed - this is a technical limitation. You can test this if you just search with your internet browser thru the following search results and you'll always find at least one occurance of what you searched for - unbound to what is highlighted.

I 'own' a technical-professional group on LinkedIn, which I'm moving to a stand-alone forum platform. Over the last couple of years, LinkedIn has dumbed down the Groups platform to the point that's it no longer serves its purpose for groups like mine.Mick wrote:Can you explain why and what it is you're trying to achieve, there may be another way.
We're using said code for 15 months and it's working as intended. I've learnt that tickets remain in status "unresolved" almost always because so far nobody wrote a fix thru git (and code thru comments doesn't count as such).davidbutler wrote:Did this pass the test of time in your implementation?
That's simply not true.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote:if you type in a phrase with or without quotes, the phpbb search will return posts with that phrase but also it will return every post that has any of the individual words or any combination of the words in that phrase.
