problem insearching articles where authors initials are used

Postby ushasharma84 » Sun May 23, 2010 10:05 pm

hi
i have uploaded back issues through quick submit plugin and there are some authors who have used only initials in their first name so i have also added single letter initials in their first name. Now when i want to search all those articles which have N in their first name It does not list any articles but if I search by last name Joseph then it will show results.

Hi ushasharma84,

The search function doesn't search for strings of less than four characters, IIRC, so you won't be able to match just one letter of a name, even if it's the only one.

Cheers,
James
