Today I have seen a strange issue in WordPress menu search functionality. I was testing a string which was not there in the post or page title but still, the search was showing results for that. I have tested this on two different WordPress installations and also created a screencast to explain the issue. Please see: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cq1YrnTKjS

Hi @prashantvatsh, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

The search is performed not just in the post or page title, but also in post content. There might have been a test or latest word somewhere in the post.

If you try searching for something less common, like non-existing-string, that should return the expected result of no posts.
