I'm hoping this is the right place to post this; if not, please let me know.

How can I disable the use of special characters int the search field? I'm referring to this list, as documented in the last paragraph of the Lucene documentation:

+ - && || ! ( ) { } [ ] ^ " ~ * ? : \

The problem is that in my website many articles have titles containing these special characters, this is particularly true for dashes and colons, and my users expect that if they type something like some_event: it was a success in the search box (which is the title of an article) the search should return that article, while it returns every article and every page in the site.

Can this feature be disabled?

 

Matteo
