Hey Paul-

I am wondering if their is a issue with added link fields and searching. I can search on Des Moines and get the results I expect. I can narrow my search by typing in George and get my expected results. However if I start a new search and I type in George Des Moines and I do not get any results. It seems with my configuration I can search all the selected fields together.


In the setting/search - I have configured to search

Default search type for simple search: all the words
Don't require space around search terms to get match: yes
Links: title,url,description,tags,address,city,state,zipcode,phone

Thanks-

"all of the words" means that for a field to count as a match it must contain all of the words -- field 1 containing one word and field 2 containing another doesn't count as containing both words. I don't think this is a bug because it's a behavior some people may expect and rely on.

Could we revisit this? I realise it's not a bug but would it be possible to add an option where partial data from all selected search fields is combined ie. a match is returned if a complete search phrase is found in title and description? It would be very useful.

Will move to feature suggestions. What would be the term to describe this sort of search?

Good, thanks.

Name: perhaps combined field or partial match multi field? or partial match combined fields?

..cross field combined match? or across field match.
