Hi, If I'm not misunderstanding how the new query type works, it seems that
%SEARCH{ "name ~ 'Item4'" type="query" web="LitterTray" nosearch="on" nototal="off" }

doesn't work. See example below:

Number of topics: 0

Where using the old fashion gives the expected results :

Any Idea ? Thanks, Eric

Indeed this does look a bit strange, perhaps there's a "cross-over" between searches?

If I do another search like:

%SEARCH{"name = 'DontFindThis'" web="Bugs" type="query"}%

Results come up a bit strange:

Searched: name = 'DontFindThis'

Number of topics: 0

- There is a "dual" display of numbers, "14" appears to be left over from the above search.

The original report was for name not matching in queries; this is resolved. The second part, where the result is presented twice, is not the subject of this report, so I suggest, if you are worried about it, you should isolate the issue and open a new report.

Can someone please merge this to MAIN for me?


Merged. Thanks for fixing.


Hi guys, thanks for fixing, the example above shows that we have now the same result using either type = query or regex, nice. all the best, eric.
