I have omeka classic 2.6, and I have problem searching collections and publications by their titles. What I mean is that, when there is a number in a title ( for example “8/aa/18”) the position can’t be found, despite that it is in the data base. What is the reason? And what would be the solution?
I’d appreciate all the help
Do you get different results if you use the Item-specific “advanced” search available from the items browse page?
The sitewide search uses MySQL’s full-text search, and I’d bet it’s considering those slashes to be word boundaries, meaning you have 3 very short “words” in the text “8/aa/18”. MySQL full-text search by default won’t find any words shorter than 4 characters.
The item-specific search uses a different method to perform the search and shouldn’t have that restriction.
