Punctuation when searching titles
In searching for the television series "Here's Lucy," properly spelled and with proper punctuation, one will receive a message that reads "Sorry, but no results were returned using the query information you provided. Please redefine your search terms and try again."

However, if one submits in the 1-Link.org search engine the title of this series as "Heres Lucy," omitting the apostrophe punctuation between "Here" and "s" (which actually stands for "Here is"), the results one would expect to receive after having submitted the properly punctuated series title of "Here's Lucy" are produced, all episodes from all six seasons of the series available.

I wonder if this same situation might occur with other film or TV series' titles that include punctuation, such as "Charlie's Angels" or "Who's the Boss?" If so, perhaps a general reminder statement prominently displayed somewhere on the site would be helpful, so members will not give up searching for a title simply because of a punctuation situation.

I hope this is helpful for others. Smile
