#6164: Search issue found
 Reporter:  kajalgohel       |       Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect           |      Status:  closed
 Priority:  normal           |   Milestone:
Component:  Photo Directory  |  Resolution:  wontfix
 Keywords:  needs-patch      |
Changes (by coffee2code):

 * status:  new => closed
 * resolution:   => wontfix


 To provide background, the search currently includes:

 * partial matching search of post title (will be changing to exact
 matching soon)
 * partial matching search of excerpt
 * partial matching search of content
 * exact matching of tag names

 We do NOT search non-tag taxonomies, such as colors, orientations, and
 categories. We excluded those intentionally. Of those, orientations is
 definitely not something we're going to add to search, and probably not
 categories as well as proposed in #6161.

 If someone wants all photos of a specific orientation, then the
 [https://wordpress.org/photos/orientation/ orientations listing] is where
 they should go.

 The proper path forward for including orientations, colors, and probably
 categories within the search as we have it now would be as search filters.
 These would be extended options for the search form beyond the basic
 search text input, where a user can choose orientations, colors, and/or
 categories to limit their search of some given text.
