Search term with symbols and special characters

Hi all,

I have Algolia react instant search working fine. However when a user search something like “cars &&, !!!”, it shows a results set for the search term 'cars". It ignores the symbols and special characters. Can someone explain me what’s happening here? Is there anyway that I can include the rest of characters in the search?

Regards,
Nethanjan

Hi Nethanjana,

Please reference Special characters do not affect results when searching - #2 by haroen which goes over this same issue.
