Improvement to the search widget

Description

Consider a statement in a blog post such as:

Let there be light.

But if someone searches "let there be light" with quotes, the search won't return this result.

So the search widget needs to be improved to return this result.

Sure, your screenshot doesn't prove that it works.

None of what you say disproves my first comment.

Your screenshot "Screenshot from 2018-11-26 16-47-44.png" does not have "light" in italics.

Dot is irrelevant.

Thank you for the ticket, @superpoincare!

This is unlikely to be possible in WordPress core in the foreseeable future, as MySQL's search functionality doesn't support stripping out the HTML when finding search results.

If you require more accurate searching, I would advise trying out an Elasticsearch plugin.

  • Component changed from Widgets to Query

Changing the component, as the search is handled by WP_Query::parse_search(), not by the widget.
