Description

In the photo section page(https://wordpress.org/photos/), when we trying to search by Orientation, It is not working properly. I tried to search with portrait Orientation name but it's not working, while other two Orientation are working(landscape, square).

For better understanding I provide the screenshots.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

To provide background, the search currently includes:

  • partial matching search of post title (will be changing to exact matching soon)
  • partial matching search of excerpt
  • partial matching search of content
  • exact matching of tag names

We do NOT search non-tag taxonomies, such as colors, orientations, and categories. We excluded those intentionally. Of those, orientations is definitely not something we're going to add to search, and probably not categories as well as proposed in #6161.

If someone wants all photos of a specific orientation, then the orientations listing is where they should go.

The proper path forward for including orientations, colors, and probably categories within the search as we have it now would be as search filters. These would be extended options for the search form beyond the basic search text input, where a user can choose orientations, colors, and/or categories to limit their search of some given text.
