Summary: bug using category subjects in search terms
Created: 2006-03-26 14:17
Status: Closed - fixed for 2.1.4
Version: 2.1.3 (all versions since 2.1.beta27)
OS: all platforms
Description: This bug was introduced in pmwiki-2.1.beta27 and is still present in pmwiki-2.1.3
In Pmwiki syntax Category subject terms start with exclamation sign "!" e.g. "!Calendar". When one enters search query that consists of two terms one (or both) of which are category subject, pmwiki treats both terms as mere words dropping special meaning of "!".
To reproduce the bug perform the following steps:
As a matter of fact, pmwiki-2.1.beta26 performs category subject searches correctly.
As a simple (and temporary) way of fixing the bug I replaced pmwiki-2.1.3 functin MakePageList (file scripts/pagelist.php) with the corresponding one from pmwiki-2.1.beta26. Now category searches operate as expected.
I Hope that this bug in core Pmwiki functionality will be given proper attention.
