I have a question regarding media search from a user perspective. The majority of image files we are importing follow a certain, established naming convention that includes a hyphen (e.g. tr17-0030) and searching for that exact name returns every file that includes tr17 with no exact match and it seems to ignore everything after the hyphen. I wanted to confirm if that is the case and if there is a way to adjust the search to include hyphens so the results would return tr17-0030 at the top of the list.
Hyphen is the reserved character so it will be excluded from the result
For any search string, the following characters are reserved:
If any of those characters appears in a query, it is escaped to prevent errors. For example, the string John+Doe is escaped to John\\+Doe.
I think you can write custom logic to replace the "hyphen" with space or any other character and then your search will work properly.
Thank you for the response, that narrows my problem down a bit. Now, how would I go about returning results for this exact file name: tr17-0030. It appears to me that not only the hyphen but also the numbers (0300) are causing problems? Any ideas?
