My phone autocapitalised my search term. I got one and a half pages of results.
Because I failed to find the page I was looking for I searched without the capitalisation, got 9 pages and found the page I was looking for.
I don't know if search fuzzyness can be tweaked but it may help those less strict term search savvy.

Hey rizole. Thanks for flagging. What was the search term? I just tested with a few different ones capitalised and not, and got the same results each time.

It was wallpaper.
I think I've jumped the gun flagging it up though. Now I'm trying to replicate it, it's not capitalisation that's the issue. Im getting the same results with upper and lower.
Except the first time I tried...

Oddly I only got a page and a half the first time I searched last night and the first this morning. The other umpteen times today have all returned the same results.
Not sure what that might be but it's not fuzziness.

Well, I just searched rizole and had 200 results, but only 18 for RIZOLE... :whistle:

Weird... :D

I suspect it's caching to speed up the search result.
