Description Ben 2005-02-02 17:35:34 UTC
Search function inside a <pre> balise is impossible.
No result with words inside (pre) tag !

Thanks for your help... & good luck

I don't understand what this means.

Can you provide a test case? Detailed descriptions of steps to take to reproduce the problem would be very helpful.
Comment 2 Ben 2005-04-21 18:00:24 UTC

Version: MediaWiki 1.3.7

If I insert a text inside a balide <pre> like "<pre>Hello world !</pre>" in a page
and I looks for the word "world", this page isn't in the result because "world"
is in "<pre>" balise !

If I insert a (normal) text in a page, the result is correct.

I hope you will understand my example.

Ok, I tested this on 1.3.12 and 1.4.2 on MySQL 4.0.23 and I cannot reproduce a

Steps taken:
1. Created a page [[Hi1]] containing text "<pre>Hello world !</pre>"
2. Created a page [[Hi2]] containing text "Hello world !"
3. Ran a search for "world"

Both pages Hi1 and Hi2 are returned in the search.

Note that 1.3.7 is really old. There have been a number of security fixes in
later 1.3.x releases, and many bug fixes and improvements in 1.4.
