#1209: Search function does not like apostrophes?
Reporter:  welshpixie          |       Owner:       
    Type:  defect              |      Status:  new  
Priority:  minor               |   Milestone:  1.1.2
Keywords:  apostrophe, search  |  
 Using BP1.1 and WP 2.8.4a

 We have a setup on our site that will call for users to search on terms
 that include apostrophes, but this doesn't seem to be working.

 For example - a few of our users have a profile field filled in as ''The
 Sha'Tar''. Searching for this field including the apostrophe yields no
 results. Searching for ''The Shar'', however, finds everyone who has ''The
 Sha'Tar'' in their profile.

 Our site is encouraging networking and will rely on people being able to
 search on this particular field, which will eventually have more names
 with apostrophes in them.

 Apologies if this has already been brought up - I couldn't find a ticket
 with it.
