#3338 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Blog Search: Ignore Soft Hyphens

Reported by: transalpin Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0.5
Component: Optimization Keywords: hyphenate, hyphenation, discretionary hyphen, search hunt-inactive
Focuses: Cc:


The W3C and the Unicode Consortium say it: For operations such as searching and sorting, the soft hyphen should always be ignored.

To clarify, a search for “wordpress” should return both “WordPress” and “Word­Press”.

Personally, I extensively use the Soft Hyphen character (U+00AD, ­) for posts written in German, unfortunately making the text unsearchable. It just looks better, even for non-justified alignment.
