I am using Rh2020.4.173.  I have topics named using numbers and other characters such as ? or &.  

I added ? to the special characters in the Responsive HTML5 output but the search still does not return my topic called What is xxxxxx?

Respons Output special character.pngsearch special character.pngSearch no special character.png

 

How do I get special characters like ?, &, and others to be searchable

Peter,

 

Thanks for your response and question. We did not have a resolution to having search find materials with a question mark (?).  We are in the process of renaming our materials without special characters.

 

We were surprised to see numbers 0-9 considered special characters.   I have kept those listed in my output special characters since we have over 160 materials with numbers in the titles.  These are technical documents that need to maintain the numbers in the file name.

... but you didn't post a link here as I suggested. I have now added a vote to that bug.
