Confiforms full text search issue


Summary: when there is any colon (:) inside an hyperlink field, the full text search doesn't work.


- I defined a form with a hyperlink type of field with field name of url

- I created a tableview with instant search and full text search enabled

- When the url doesn't include colon (:) the search works. However, when an url includes colon, the search doesn't work (I didn't include http:// or https:// in the search box otherwise it will never work for search). The particular url has the following string in the url


- What can I do to enable search for this type of urls?

- Are there any other special characters that will have the same type of search issue?


Thank you.

Is this very important to search with a protocol, ie a full absolute url?


I wanted to detect if the url exists already before creating a new entry. 

However, it is inconsistent between the behaviors' of different macros:

- the field definition rule uniqueness detects the url already exists

- the search function does not return any record

I removed the function to detect the uniqueness for now but it is not ideal. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle it?
