#32824 new feature request

Consistent search fields between posts and terms

Searching for posts currently checks the post_title and post_content fields, while searching terms checks the name and slug fields. Could post_name be added to the where clause for posts, and description be added to terms? That way, searching would consistently check an entity's title, slug, and content.

  • Keywords dev-feedback added

I'd be interested in @johnbillion's take on adding these extra searchable fields by default.

  • Keywords needs-patch added; dev-feedback removed

Makes sense, but some performance impact numbers will be needed to ensure search queries don't get slowed down any more than they already are.
