The search finds every John when searching for John Doe.
The search function doesn't actually look for a first and last name combination. It just finds every occurence of the first name and every occurence of the surname that occur in the same document. This is useless.
The search engine should function this way on all our databases. If you find one that doesn’t work this way, please send us a copy of the url you are viewing so we can fix it. For those databases that display images, we do highlight all the instances of both words, but the reason it appears as a hit is because both words appear together somewhere on the page.
The search function returns way too many results. The admin response doesn't help much, because the problem seems to occur on every search. I don't have the time to send every url, nor do I have the time to wade through thousands of results, only to find out that none of them are what I was looking for.
Horrible design logic! Was this software designed in some country where given names were the primary identifier? Like Scandinavia where Larson, Nilsson, etc. were the appropriate naming conventions?
