Subject Re: Searching for term sequence including blank character using regex
Date Tue, 03 May 2016 14:01:52 GMT
Not quite sure. How is the field type defined? What
is the result of adding &debug=true to the query? Have
you looked at the actual terms indexed via the
admin UI/schema browser? Have you looked at the
admin/analysis page to see how the data is parsed by
the fieldType?

If this is a tokenized field you should be fine
with fq=content:"hello world", possibly with slop.

And I'm all confused. The mail came through with
what looks like regex expressions (slash period asterisk
hello world period asterisk slash).
But that's often an artifact of markup for bolding
which gets stripped by some e-mail programs. You've
been around long enough that I highly doubt you're trying
to do regex queries!
