Hi all,
Does anyone know if the posts_where filter is supposed to be applied
to the admin searches? (wp-admin/edit.php)

I have a very simple plugin that uses the posts_where filter [1]

I noticed that i had to call it inside of a if ( !is_admin() )
conditional or it would screw up the ability to search for posts in
the backend (all searches return empty).
This wasn't a big deal, I just assumed that I didn't understand the
filter previously and added the conditional.

I came across the problem again today with the plugin Search
Everything [2]. Is this related to the posts_where filter and should
it be doing this?
