Provide ability to escape dot (.) to search for a literal period in a string...


    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      Currently, it is not possible to escape a literal period (.) to search for strings that contain a literal period. One use case is for searching documentation for "Mysql 4.x". All variations on escaping the period don't have any effect, the character is either stripped or interpreted as a single-character wildcard.

      You can reproduce the problem by searching confluence.atlassian.com for "2.10" and then "2.*". The first returns documentation related to Confluence 2.10, the second returns anything with the number "2" in it.
