#3034 closed enhancement (fixed)

Search only tickets by default

Reported by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion Owned by: obenland's profile obenland
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Trac Keywords: has-patch


When performing a search on Trac, both tickets and changesets are included by default. This adds significant noise to the search results, especially for less experienced contributors who may not understand or even notice the difference between [12345] and #12345 at the beginning of each item's summary.

By default, only tickets should be searched when using the search form at the top of the page.
