Would it ever be possible to allow search to find files when the search terms are out of order?

 

Find, for instance: 2018-10-30 Vacation North Carolina.jpg

 

When searching for North Carolina Vacation?

 

This would be absolutely HUGE for me, because i rename my files based on 'tags' but my hierarchy isn't always 100% consistent.

Wait, I might be an idiot.

 

I installed the beta again, today, and is the search actually any different?

 

I've realized since my (admittedly brief) test, that the files I happened to search for were palindromic, and worked even in 3.5.

Like my original example, it didn't seem like I could find a files titled "Vacation North Carolina" by searching " North Carolina Vacation" or vice versa.

 

It handles incomplete words (searching "olina" for example,) but all terms need to be in the correct order.

Well yes I can reproduce, that is strange. I might have to look through sqlite 3.26.0 issue reports @@MikePlanet

@@Luke - I noticed that behaviour too in my tests - can you pm me the code snippets you use for the FTS seach, then I can take a look. (we also should implement the partial search imho, wihich is still missing plus the extended field search - however, this is another topic)

Or is it a "work in progress" for a future release?

;-) ... I had a look at it and if I am not wrong and it is not a bug on the sqlite plugin, it is a very small change ... of course "for a future release" - how could you get it in a past one  :-)
