Dash characters in the searches

Sun Dec 09, 2007 4:44 pm


There is a bug in the character validation when you search for the games in the database. The search allows alphanumeric characters only, making it impossible to search e.g. for "space-pilot" with an exact specification. The only way to find it is to do a partial match search, returning a set of games first, then choosing "space-pilot" from there.

So I think dashes should be allowed.

If dash characters cannot be unconditionally allowed, some extra checks may be needed. I do not know whether a dash could be potentially harmful or not.
