This is on en:Wikipedia, the Lucene search. I don't know if this is also true of
the other searches.
Suggest that this seems to be duplicate of Bug 42, or perhaps vice-versa.
I have just transferred over a hundred lab procedures in our new wiki (media
wiki 1.6.5). However I've just noticed that text searches don't include numbers.
So we can't look up dates, versions and other strings that may contain numbers
(ex: 3D, Nad83, NTV2...). This bug is severe limitations to our lab wiki. Is
there a work around out there? Will this be fixed in a future wiki version?
Fixed in Lucene Search 2, numbers are now being indexed.
