Search Functionality not Working Correctly

I create a post and give it category "cork"

I then search and nothing comes up on search result

Many other testing variations also dont work

I originally found the bug using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme, Search Module. I notified them. There staff signed into my page and validated the feature was not working correctly.

Since then I have identified it doesn't work anywhere on any theme with any third party search plugin

There is a major problem

Can someone with the power let me know whats going on ?

I'm going testing now with older WordPress version to see if that has any answers

What search term are you querying? Are you trying to search for “cork”? WordPress does not currently include category or tag names in search queries.
