I have identified a problem with how the filter search works for Media tags. Below is an example of trying to find a specific image by filename using the filter search in the media library.
- For our only repository, go to the Media Libray
- Perform a filter search for: CaringHandsDay_reschedule_NL_1100.jpg
When you follow these steps, no image is returned. If I modify the search to only “Caring” many images are returned, but not the one I need. If I leave the filter search empty and just scroll through the the library, the image can be found.
I also tried searching by “CaringHands” and again, several images are returned but not the one I need. However, if I search for “CaringHandsDay” the image is found. There are several images in this series, and this search returns them all. The specifc filename referenced in this example is a banner style image that mentions “rescheduled for July 11th” in the artwork.
If I remove or add a single character in the filename from the filter search of “CaringHandsDay”, the images are not found. That means if you search “CaringHandsDa” (without the ‘y’) or “CaringHandsDay_” (with the underscore) nothing returns.
This is a highly sensitive filter search that means many images will fail to be found unless you use very specific search terms. A more effective search should return any images that contains any part of the terms used in the search.
Thank you for your time.
