i am faced with the following problem when using Wordpress Search.
If i create a post titled "Try Something", with body "Hello testing t&y thank you".
If i now take a look in my db, i see that the special character "&" has been encoded to
"&" in the post body.
Then, if i try to search "t&y" i get no results. I suspect this is because of special character encoding? I can see that the search query is looking for
I suspect the encoding mismatch is the reason i am getting no results in my search.
What is strange, if i create a post with title "Testing t&y today" i can see in the database that the character was not encoded and stored normal as follows "Testing t&y today" and yes the search "t&y" does return it in results.
How would i solve the issue?
