Understanding search function

Hi everybody!

We're on Confluence 6 now and still have problems with finding our Content. 

For example, we have a page titled "OEB". When I enter that to the search bar, the page is suggested, I can click it and everything is fine. But when I hit enter instead, the list of search results shows only pages hat have the text "OEB" inside its content, but not the page titled "OEB". Is that a bug? Am I missing something?

As a test I've searched for 3 different pages using the method you outlined, and the pages with the matching page title came back 2 out of 3 times.  The one page that didn't come back had an attachment with an identical title, and that was returned, but the page it was on wasn't in the search results even though it had the same title.

Does your search return an attachment called "OEB"?

Interesting! I just checked, neither the page with the "OEB" title nor the page with "OEB" content have any attachments :o

I can't find any reason in the documentation or FAQs about why this would happen.

I think you might have found a bug!
