Sorry if this is a duplicate question. I'm working on my searching skills.

What I get from the original post is that this question was asked then tagged as a possible bug in 2009, and then tagged with status-completed in early 2013. Also from the discussion it seems that searching for special characters is no longer possible. This was what I experienced when I tried to search for :+ and ":+" on stackoverflow.

Am I reading this correctly? Thanks for your help.

    Nice, but special chars are not always in the code. – nicael Oct 30 '15 at 23:46

  • I agree with @nicael. It would be good to be able to search the entire post or even the title for special characters. – gt92102 Oct 31 '15 at 2:17
