Description (last modified by scribu)

When you search for more than one word, the SQL LIKEs are ORed together.

They should be ANDed together so that the more words you add, the fewer, and more relevant, results you get.

Alternatively, all previous results could be returned, but ordered by relevance: more matching keywords = higher ranking. See #7394

Nevermind, the 'OR' is between post_title and post_content, not between clauses.
