Using Specific Searching with the Perch Search Function

  • Hey Perch Community,

    I have 3 search functions on a members landing page. One field states to search by "Name", the other "Country", and the last field by "Area of Expertise". I notice when you search, Perch will find an instance of the search item, but not the entire search string.

    Example: Searching by "Area of Expertise" with the value "Pediatric Oncology".

    This search will pull up multiple profiles with some containing "Pediatric" and some others only containing "Oncology" but not profiles containing only "Pediatric Oncology".

    What am I doing wrong?

    Here is the search code

    Here is the results code

    Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers, Matt
