Using underscore in a search

Postby pstieber » Tue May 22, 2012 3:49 pm

I'm trying to search the forums for wx_str, but the underscore is ignored.

I tried "wx_str" and wx\_str, but it didn't work.

How can I do a search for wx_str?

I have just - and many time before - run into the very same and several similar - search problems.

It is a pity that a such a cool batch of software has such a literally useless and frustrating search engine as part of its support forum. :oops:

Can anyone explain the reason(s)?
Is there any hope it will ever change?

Yeah, there's not a whole lot we can do about that.

Whenever I do run into issues getting a search working like this though, I often just make use of Google to do the search itself instead:

Thank you for 'putting this to bed', at least for me :cry:
But also for giving me a work-around :D
