Seach with apostrophe does not get back results

You are here

I have noticed recently that when I search for text in the search boxes on the left, and include an apostrophe, Hymnary does not return any suitable results. E.g. if I type "I'm a pilgrim and I'm a stranger" no results will come back.



This is a bug that we will be fixing soon. It is only a problem when using the left hand search boxes. The apostrophe will work in the "Search Everything" box, or you can eliminate the apostrophes if using the left hand search boxes, for now.
