Allow precise search for custom field


I have some custom field which I need to make searchable "=" instead of "~".

Does anyone know how to achieve that?

I found better solution - simple and amazing plugin - adds additional searchers, including exact searchers - for custom fields.

It also makes it possible to use these fields as dimensions in 1- and 2-dimensional statistics gadgets on the dashboards.

That's exactly what I said - write a new searcher to do it. Ok, someone else has done it for you, but it's the same thing.

You'll need to write a new searcher to do this. It should be a moderately simple plugin to write (not that I'm sure it's particularly useful).

Stuff on writing searchers is entwined with custom fields (As that's what they search) - see
