For example I have 2 wiki pages. First page includes such keywords as AD.180, AD.159, AD.200, second page includes keywords AD.300, AD.180, AD.159. If I search for AD.300 it displays me all pages which have AD before the number. Search doesn't take the AD.300 as a whole word, it searches for everything what has AD, not only AD.300.

How do I solve it?

Use double quotes to find exact phrases. If you want to learn about "AD.300" and don't want a bunch of results that include documents that include the word. This tells the search engine to find the exact phrase inside the quotes.

  • This helped me a little, thanks. But if I have AD.180 in one page and AD 180 in another and if I search "AD.180" it still find me both pages, not the one where AD.180 is written. Aug 6, 2014 at 8:56

    Than I guess you have to use OR function "AD.180" or "AD 180"

  • OR you just can search twice about it.
